A set of signals is data.
Data are static representation of stored signals. A set of data is information. Information here is a mathematical unit rather than a social one. If a sginal is 0, a derived data of the signals can be 00000. As signal is generated by a switch, the state changed switch can generate 1 instead of 0. The new data is 000001. The essence of data is there is an order. Any signal set with an order is defined as data.
