Information is often measured in terms of Shannon’s entropy, and it relies on the probability of possible outcomes for a given source. However, when the experimental observables are contextual, it is not clear how to use Shannon’s entropy. Here de Barros will discuss the idea of using extended probabilities, inspired by quantum theory, to estimate the amount of information of contextual sources.
