What does the word "Fly by Wire" mean? I hear it usually relating to Airbus Aircraft.

Fly by wire generally means that the control inputs are converted into electrical impulses, go through a computer, then go to the control surfaces/parts of the aircraft. There they are converted back to motion by things such as motors and pumps.
