What is Information?

Information can be described as data, which has been processed in such a way that it can be meaningful and useful to the person who receives it. 

It is made up of figures, words, and symbols that have meaning.  

Examples of information include:   

– School register that contains the names of students. 

– Report sheet of an individual student in a class.  

– Statement of Bank account.

– Statement of pension fund account.

Using our example on data  

DataDataDataInformation
1st CA  2nd CA  ExamTotal
 \( \frac{14}{20} \) \( \frac{13}{20} \) \( \frac{40}{60} \) \( \frac{67}{100} \)

Each datum given above has no meaning though we know it is a figure (raw fact).

However, when data are processed into a more meaningful and useful form it is called information.

For example, Femi is 15 years old and Tosin is 14 years old. The total age for both of them is 29 years.

The process involves a series of operations to be performed by the computer on the data that are fed into it. The operation can be arithmetic operations such as +, -, *, / or logical operations such as “who is taller or who is weightier? The output of the processing can be displayed or printed.

What is Information Transmission?

Information transmission is the process of transferring information from one source to another, called a destination through a communication medium.
