Defense Information - Semantic Aspects

Keywords: semantic information, information defense, cognitive technologies, cybernetics, cybersecurity, cyber, AI, cognitive phenomenon


The study focuses on the semantic aspects of information, the role of cognitive technologies in the time of information defense, the emergence of new concepts related to information security and protection, cybersecurity, and resilience. It can be argued that information is a complex quantity; measuring information means measuring complexity. Artificial intelligence and problem areas related to this area are also the subject of analysis. We are also looking for an answer to the link between cybernetics and cyber technology and to the popular term “cyber” that has recently become buzzword. Another aspect of the study is various models of data structuring and information protection from the point of view of modern strategies.
