Basic definitions in information science
Data: a representation of facts or ideas in a formalized manner, capable of being communicated or manipulated by some process.
Information: the meaning that a human assigns to data by means of the known conventions used in its representation.
So: data is related to facts and machines, information is related to meaning and humans.
