  • 1. Dr. Raju M. Mathew
  • 2. KNOWLEDGE ALONE MATTERS Without Knowledge, there is no Science or Technology or Human Progress. Without Knowledge, Education Withers. Knowledge gives meaning and relevance to Information or Data. Knowledge is the outcome of human thinking. Knowledge is structured on the pattern of thinking structure. Concepts are the building blocs of Knowledge. All Domains of Knowledge have a common structure. When Knowledge is put into action or practice, information is generated, though a bundle of Data or Information never makes any Knowledge. All religions are founded on Knowledge and Teaching. However, Knowledge is a product for consumption and production and not for ‘worshipping’. When ‘Knowledge is made Divine or Holy, nobody can put it into practical applications and the net result is ‘Mass Ignorance’ or ‘Mass Illiteracy’. Over 80% of the humanity lives in Ignorance and Illiteracy.
  • 3. READNG, WRITING AND KNOWLEDGE Knowledge originated even before the origin of writing and reading. Letters are symbols having meaning attributed. All that is read or written need not be ‘Knowledge’. What is forming in the mind of a great teacher in a structured and logical way is coming out in the form of words or teaching or knowledge that are written later, probably by his disciples. Great teachers are equated with God or treated as the mouth pieces of the God by the hero-worshipping disciples. With their effective communication skills, what they felt was made as a set of religious truths or beliefs. Literacy or education is not an essential condition for the creation or transfer of Knowledge. Great scholars are there even among illiterate or uneducated men and women. Educational qualifications are not the true reflection of Skills, Expertise or Knowledge of a person. So we can have ‘Doctors’ (Ph. D.s) without expertise or knowledge.
  • 4. THINKING PATTERN AND KNOWLEDGE STRUCTURE The Vedas in India originated about 5000 years ago; the Bible – New and Old Testaments between 2000 to 4000 years ago, the Quran about 1400 years ago; Modern Science about 100 years ago. Even in the 21st century, in spite of the racial, cultural, geographical or political differences, people can understand them. The simple reason is that the thinking pattern of the Sages who taught Vedas about 5000 years ago or of Jesus Christ who taught the New Commandments about 2000 years ago or of Prophet Mohammad who taught Quran about 1400 years ago or of the Modern Scientists of the 21st century are almost same. The structure of Knowledge created in different periods in diverse domains remain almost same that too in tune with our logical thinking pattern. Knowledge structure is non-linear and dynamic for every concept is multi-dimensional and growing to assimilate new meaning.
  • 5. KNOWMATICS Though Knowledge and Mathematics are as old as the human civilization, Knowmatics--the Mathematics of Knowledge to study the nature, structure, representation and communication of Knowledge is a of a very recent origin. Knowmatics is the consequence of the failure of Information Technology to process and mange Knowledge and make knowledge accessible to the entire humanity, in spite of the existence of several Data banks, Information Systems, ever growing world wide web and web technologies, including search engines, social net works and etc. Knowmatics has been originated to process knowledge, to make knowledge accessible world wide and thereby making all social production processes Knowledge Intensive , facilitate the growth of Knowledge Industries and augment the production, consumption and marketing of Knowledge as a Value-added Product.
  • 6. FOUNDATIONS OF KNOWMATICS Knowmatics is founded on Mathew’s Theories of Knowledge Consumption-Production Correlation and Stage theory of Knowledge Consumption- Production Growth. These theories provided the methodological tools to treat Knowledge as a commodity for consumption, production and marketing both in quantitative and qualitative terms. Some Mathematicians attribute Pythagorean Mathematics as the basis of Knowmatics. Further research is needed to know more about the foundations of Knowmatics.
  • 7. MULTI-DISCIPLINARY BASIS Since Knowmatics studies the nature, structure, production, consumption, transfer and marketing of Knowledge, using Mathematical and Engineering Tools, it is related to Epistemology, Psycholinguistics, Brain Research, Cognitive Science, Cybernetics and Networking, Education, Information Technology, Library Science and Communication Sciences.
  • 8. KNOWLEDGE INDUSTRY Knowmatics facilitates the mass production, consumption, delivery and marketing of value added and customized Knowledge Modules, Packages and Solutions globally. Knowmatics is the basis of Knowledge Industry that relives men from the burden of searching in the net or seeking knowledge in libraries or class rooms and facilitates optimal consumption or application of Knowledge in Education, Decision Making, Professional Practices and all other social production processes.
  • 9. FURTHER STUDY AND RESEARCH Since Knowmatics was originated in 2005 and developed very recently, it needs further study and research due to its complex nature and greater impacts. The only authentic work on Knowmatics is : Mathew, R.M. and Mathew, R.R. ‘Knowmatics- A New Revolution in Higher Education’, Journal of the World Universities Forum, 4,1,2011:1-11. Its video presentation can be seen in YouTube besides recent works on Knowledge Industry, Knowledge Banks, Knowledge Theories and Knowledge Production posted in www.slideshare.net/drrajumathew
