Information Evaluation Book Description:

During the reception of a piece of information, we are neverpassive. Depending on its origin and content, from our personalbeliefs and convictions, we bestow upon this piece of information,spontaneously or after reflection, a certain amount of confidence.Too much confidence shows a degree of naivety, whereas an absolutelack of it condemns us as being paranoid. These two attitudes aresymmetrically detrimental, not only to the proper perception ofthis information but also to its use. Beyond these two extremes,each person generally adopts an intermediate position when facedwith the reception of information, depending on its provenance andcredibility. We still need to understand and explain how thesejudgements are conceived, in what context and to what end. Spanning the approaches offered by philosophy, militaryintelligence, algorithmics and information science, this bookpresents the concepts of information and the confidence placed init, the methods that militaries, the first to be aware of the need,have or should have adopted, tools to help them, and the prospectsthat they have opened up. Beyond the military context, the bookreveals ways to evaluate information for the good of other fieldssuch as economic intelligence, and, more globally, theinformational monitoring by governments and businesses.
