The bit is a basic unit of information in information theory, computing, and digital communications. The name is a portmanteau of binary digit. In information theory, one bit is typically defined as the information entropy of a binary random variable that is 0 or 1 with equal probability, or the information that is gained when the value of such a variable becomes known. As a unit of information, the bit is also known as a shannon, named after Claude E. Shannon.
