Course description

Nature of information. Information sources and users. Events and information. Information layers: stochastic, syntax, semantic, pragmatic, apobetic. Information redundancy. Entropy. Entropy on the information channel. Codes. Markov chains. Syntactic aspect of information: rules and syntax forms. Semantic parameters: actuality, existence, reachability, relevance and importance. Measurement of a semantic information aspect: SIT. Natural languages. Bioinformatics. Signal and information: BT. Analytic and asymptotic signals. Noise and information channel coding: Shannon’s theorem. Bayes’ postulate and theorem. Optimum code. Coding time. Complex data processing: selection, filtering, classification and presentation. Qualitative and quantitative information aspects. Železnikar’s theses. Information agents: independent, team and social. Information agent construction. Web agents.

Examination methods

Written and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. define basic concepts in the field of information theory

2. describe the basic elements of a communication system

3. assess the correctness of applying theoretical basics in solving tasks

4. create a simulation of basic elements of the information system using a software tool

5. choose an appropriate coding method for the defined problem

6. propose an information system design for a simple problem

7. compare simple information systems
