“Breaking into the Dynamic World of Information”
The Philosophy of Information
Know how to understand and analyze information which are exposed to us on a daily basis. With the advancement of technology, web resources are constantly fluctuating different contents and are becoming more relevant as information sources in comparison to books. But how often do some of us stop to think if the information that we have researched or received may not be something we perceived? Are they reliable or is there a truth in it? Have these information been tampered?
Have you ever wondered how some news, writings, pictures or videos can turn viral? Or have you found yourself in a situation where you have spent a lot of effort but it did not equate to the results that you wanted? Take a school assignment for example. You might have spent a lot of time researching on information that is required, but ends up failing it. Why?
