DIKW Pyramid – Could this be a clue towards building a thought machine? 30 – July

The DIKW Pyramid, also known variously as the “DIKW Hierarchy“, “Wisdom Hierarchy“, the “Knowledge Hierarchy“, the “Information Hierarchy“, and the “Knowledge Pyramid“, refers loosely to a class of models for representing purported structural and/or functional relationships between data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. “Typically information is defined in terms of data, knowledge in terms of information, and wisdom in terms of knowledge”.



Inference: The clue this flow gives me about the internal workings of the human mind is how data flows from the external world to the internal unknown world. It makes absolute sense to me and  I believe most of the advanced artificial intelligence in existence today is merely reaching the “I” the information part of the DIKUW flow. This system is well known as data mining. There is no way yet to make the system understand the information forget about wisdom!

Knowledge is wisdom without experience.
Information is knowledge without context.
Data is meaningless.
