Information is data or knowledge that is organised and used for a specific purpose, e.g. to understand a concept, solve a problem or make a decision. Information can be written, spoken or in the form of images or other media.

Information is often collected and stored in databases or other organised systems and can be accessed and used by people or machines. For example, a library stores information in the form of books and a search engine stores and organises information from the internet so that users can find it more easily.

Overall, information is a valuable resource used in many different contexts, from education and research to business and decision-making.
