Informatics is a set of scientific and technical knowledge that studies the automatic processing of information using electronic devices and computer systems. includes instruction in information sciences, human-computer interaction, analysis and design of information systems, structure of telecommunications, architecture and information management»
Computer Science offers a solid background in programming, mathematics, and statistics, along with the study of the ethical and social science aspects of complex information systems. Computer science majors learn to critically analyze various information processing approaches and develop skills to design, implement, and evaluate information technology tools.
Informatics is also known as computing and encompasses the fundamentals of computer science, computer architecture, hardware, networking, artificial intelligence, as well as programming and software development.
What is IT for?
Information technology is used to carry out tasks and analyzes based on stored data, which are processed to obtain reports that serve to make decisions, in addition to preparing documents, sending and/or receiving electronic mail (email), making statistical graphs, manage the information of a company, control industrial processes, etc. Being its main objective to automate all kinds of information, in order to automate tasks, increase productivity and eliminate human errors.
The abbreviation for the word Computing is Inform.
Origin of the word computing
The word Informatics comes from the French «informatique»; word that was coined by the engineer Philippe Dreyfus in 1962, which formed a conjunction between the words “information” and “automatique”.
Informatics is the science that studies information systems, involves the practice of information processing, and information systems engineering.
Information Analysis Stages
Computer systems must fulfill three basic tasks:
- Entry : Entry of information.
- Processing or treatment of said information.
- Output : Transmission of results
