An observer-relative systems approach to information

Demetis, Dionysios; Lee, Allen

Authors

Allen Lee



Abstract

By returning to the foundational principles of second-order cybernetics and resting on the central role of the observer, this essay explores how the distinction between data/information can be conceptualized. Using systems theory, we derive a series of systemic principles for the distinction between data/information and we illustrate them with a case study from Anti-Money Laundering.
