The Info List - Percept (information Technology)

--- Advertisement ---

A PERCEPT in the information technology industry is a term used in the pricing of data transfer . For example, rather than charging an individual (who is remotely retrieving data from say a weather sensor or a GPS
device) by the size of the data, a company would charge that individual by the percept. Here a percept would constitute a statistical data point, such as a GPS
location. Pricing per percept would mean that a customer or individual using that GPS
device would actually be charged per unit of true economic value to him/her, a GPS location datapoint, rather than on the size of that datapoint in bits /bytes /kilobytes , etc.
