Etymology: [L. digitals.]
In information theory and information systems, digital refers to a technology that uses discrete, discontinuous representations of information or works in a discontinuous manner. This is contrasted with continuous, or analog systems which behave in a continuous manner, or represent information using a continuous function. Although digital representations are discrete, the information represented can be either discrete, such as numbers and letters or continuous, such as sounds, images, and other measurements. The word digital comes from the same source as the words digit and digitus, as fingers are often used for discrete counting. Mathematician George Stibitz of Bell Telephone Laboratories used the word digital in reference to the fast electric pulses emitted by a device designed to aim and fire anti-aircraft guns in 1942. It is most commonly used in computing and electronics, especially where real-world information is converted to binary numeric form as in digital audio and digital photography.
Involving or relating to computers or technology.
