Essence of Information and Mathematical Model of Information Measurement

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 154)

Abstract

Essence of Information and measurement of information is an important problem in the information theory research. By further analyzing essence of information, and based on the classical information theories represented by Shannon’s theory, a succinct and scientific definition “Information is a certainty about the uncertainty of interrelation between things and its feature” is put forward, which combines organically the concept of ontology on information and that of epistemology, and the theoretical evidence of that quantity of information can be divided into quantity of data and quantity of information is provided, and a mathematical model of integrated information measurement is also set up on this basis.
