This paper studies methods of quantitatively measuring semantic information in communication. We review existing work on quantifying semantic information, then investigate a model-theoretical approach for semantic data compression and reliable semantic communication. We relate our approach to the statistical measurement of information by Shannon, and show that Shannon's source and channel coding theorems have semantic counterparts.
