What is Information? Information includes facts, descriptions, assessments, and forecasts on different subjects of interest. The information is comprised of endless pieces of facts and data, which can be described as “molecules of knowledge.” Information is stored in the human memory, as well as in artificial databases such as documents, pictures, or computers.
What is Intelligence? Intelligence refers to information regarding a specific subject or issue that has been categorized, analyzed, filtered, and verified.

The process of collecting information, categorizing, and processing it into intelligence, verifying, summarizing, and presenting it – are all tasks performed by human beings. The more intelligent these people are – hardworking, skilled individuals, who understand their goal – the more professional their work will be, and the more
