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
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.
