Nielsen discusses the relationship between

Syntax is concerned with the formalism used to represent a message. Pragmatics is concerned with the purpose of communication. Communication normally exists within the context of some social situation. The social situation sets the context for the intentions conveyed pragmatics and the form of communication.

Whether the answer provides knowledge depends on the informed person. Information has certain characteristics. Information brings clarity and creates an intelligent human response in the mind. Information Presentation Presentation of the information is an art.

The chosen communication channel has inherent properties that determine outcomes such as the speed at which communication can take place, and over what distance. Other inputs information are important only because they are associated with causal inputs and can be used to predict the occurrence of a causal input at a later time and perhaps another place. Information is any kind of event that affects the state of a dynamic system that can interpret the information.

The information has a value

Mutual understanding implies that agents involved understand the chosen language in terms of its agreed syntax syntactics and semantics. In other words, pragmatics link language to action. Data is like raw materials while the information is equivalent to the finished goods produced after processing the raw material.

An Information System is a system that gathers data and disseminates information with the sole purpose of providing information to its users. Conceptually, information is the message utterance or expression being conveyed. These are, any dimensionally defined category of objects S, and any of its subsets R. These four layers serve to connect the social world on the one hand with the physical or technical world on the other. It becomes a telephone number.

Physical information Information has a well-defined meaning in physics. Another more philosophical outcome is that information could be thought of as interchangeable with energy. Information visualization shortened as InfoVis depends on the computation and digital representation of data, and assists users in pattern recognition and anomaly detection.

The information has a value in decision making while data does not have. Nielsen discusses the relationship between semiotics and information in relation to dictionaries.
