Information processing is how a person interprets information or data. For example I can tell you that we will be visiting you around dinner time. To me that may mean 5:30 sharp, but to you it could mean 7. It’s not the actual information or what I said, its the processing or way that you perceive it. It’s the same with a computer, information is inputted and the computer responds and processes it according to how it is told to process.
