Information Hypothesis: On Human Information Capability Study

  • Jiří Krajíček
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5819)


Main aim of this paper is to explore the human information capabilities with link to open problems in computer science. We come with working hypothesis reflecting currently known research experimental evidence of human information capabilities. As every hypothesis, presented hypothesis needs further verification to show confirmation or disconfirmation in result. Nevertheless, this work opens novel topic on scientific research with the aim to resolve presented open problems and review of classical paradigm in computer science.
