In response to ABC blog I have chosen to add more information to ‘K’ as knowledge. I understand knowledge as a data or information we previously have experienced through our senses and saved in our consciousness as instance those data we have gained it could be the name of street we lived in a few years ago, places we have been visited, food we have tasted yesterday, strong feeling of being happy, sad, afraid, angry when we went through in the past, etc. and an information is an acknowledgment which we haven’t experienced yet but it is there to reach when we are ready to learn about it or been taught by people who know the information already. I think this video will give brief information about the differences between information and knowledge
**So what is knowledge?
Knowledge is the concise and appropriate collection of information in a way that makes it useful. Knowledge refers to a deterministic process where patterns within a given set of information are ascertained. We can also positively say that when a person memorizes some information about something, then they have knowledge about it. That knowledge will have some useful and even applicable use to them but even if that’s the case, that knowledge doesn’t in itself provide for integration such as would infer further knowledge. Take the example of elementary school kids who memorize knowledge of the multiplication table (times table), for instance like the result of 3 times 3 is 9(3*3=9), because they have amassed knowledge of the table. However, the kids will not be able to respond positively when asked the result of 2300*150 as that entry isn’t in the table. It takes true analytical ability and the ability to reduce it to empirical factual knowledge, not just some memorized set of knowledge.
1. Information is processed data whereas knowledge is information that is modeled to be useful.
2. You need information to be able to get knowledge.
3. Information deals with the way data is related while knowledge examines patterns within a given set of information.
4. To get knowledge you need some cognitive and analytical ability while for information you do not need cognitive ability.
