In this work, we design an interactive coding scheme that converts any two party interactive protocol $\Pi$ into another interactive protocol $\Pi'$, such that even if errors are introduced during the execution of $\Pi'$, the parties are able to determine what the outcome of running $\Pi$ would be in an error-free setting.

Importantly, our scheme preserves the space complexity of the protocol, in addition to the communication and computational complexities. Specifically, if the protocol $\Pi$ has communication complexity $T$, computational complexity $t$, and space complexity $s$, the resulting protocol $\Pi'$ is resilient to a constant $\epsilon > 0$ fraction of adversarial errors, and has communication complexity approaching $T$ as $\epsilon$ approaches $0$, $\mathrm{poly}(t)$, and space complexity $\mathcal{O}(s \log T)$.

Prior to this work, all known interactive coding schemes required the parties to use at least $\Omega(T)$ space, as the parties were required to remember the transcript of the conversation thus far, or considered weaker error models.
