2Zaring, P.A.: From signals to knowledge : pragmatic views on the information concept.
In: Svensk biblioteks forskning. 1996, nos.2/3, S.97-109.
Abstract: Describes the characteristics of the information era: a complex environment with which business attempts, mostly unsuccessfully, to cope using management information and decision support systems. The failures may be due to the fact that the decision maker does notknow what information to look for and where. The impact of the principle of incomplete knowledge upon current business information acquisition problems motivates this paper, which looks at the concepts of data, information, and knowledge in the light of cybernetic research concerning the role of signals, artificial intelligence regarding the nature of knowledge, and Borje Langefor's infological research. The latter bridges the gap between signal and knowledge by introducing the infological equation with information as a key concept. All recognise a communication process. Focuses on the semantic, pragmatic, and social aspects of communication. Concludes that Langefor's e-message concept should be further investigated
