Ecological Characteristics of Information and Its Scientific Research†
AbstractThis paper aims to explore the ecological characteristics of information and its scientific research from various aspects. Firstly, it explores formal information including eight basic types, and then explores the essence of information involved the logic of position and order or sequence. Finally, it reveals the ecological characteristics of information ontology related to terminology framework and conceptual system, which is characterized by not only the ambiguity of formal semantics and formal information can be automatically identified and eliminated in the computer-aided information processing environment, but also the ambiguity of the content semantics and content information, can pass through language chessboard and knowledge chess game, with essential information and ontological information, to resolve ambiguity. The result is that the basic law of information and its existence is highlighted, and the social and ecological characteristics of information science research are embodied by macro models (ideas and methods) and micro models (Chinese chessboard and English chessboard). Its significance is information ecology and its supporting methodology, formalization and method system to obtain a new breakthrough, specifically for the classification of information phenomenon and attribution on the determination of its scientific basis, which is conducive to the timely identification and resolution of various ambiguities.
