Published: 04 July 2010 by MDPI in The 4th International Conference on the Foundations of Information Science session FIS 2010
Abstract: The author considered that "To the newly developed informatics" prompted by Wolfgang Hofkirchner include three tasks: developing the theoretical informatics, perfecting the framework of informatics, and implement the worldview and the methodology of informatics. And the exceeding of the traditional information theories is the priority. So, in this paper, we discussed how to exceed the traditional information theories from six aspects: improving Shannon's communication theory, perfecting Wiener's Concept of "Information", supplementing Turing's "Computing Model", generalizing human "intelligence", analyzing the theory of triple factors (substance, energy and information) of the cosmic constitution, and decoding the Mind-body problem of Descartes.
