  13. 13. Data, information, knowledge, understanding, wisdom• Data: symbols• Information: data that are processed to be useful; provides answers to "who", "what", "where", and "when" questions• Knowledge: application of data and information; answers "how" questions• Understanding: appreciation of "why“• Wisdom: evaluated understanding. Educational material created by Dr. Gilberto Hernández Quirós. 2011 13
  14. 14. DATA and INFORMATION• Data is raw. It simply exists and has no significance beyond its existence (in and of itself). It can exist in any form, usable or not. It does not have meaning of itself. In computer parlance, a spreadsheet generally starts out by holding data.• Information is data that has been given meaning by way of relational connection. This "meaning" can be useful, but does not have to be for everyone.Educational material created by Dr. Gilberto Hernández Quirós. 2011 14
  15. 15. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING• Knowledge is the appropriate collection of information as intended is to be useful. Knowledge is a deterministic process. When someone "memorizes" information, then s/he has amassed knowledge. This knowledge has useful meaning to them, but it does not provide for, in and of itself, an integration such as would infer further knowledge.• Understanding is an interpolative and probabilistic process. It is cognitive and analytical. It is the process by which I can take knowledge and synthesize new knowledge from the previously held knowledge. The difference between understanding and knowledge is the difference between "learning" and "memorizing". People who have understanding can undertake useful actions because they can synthesize new knowledge.Educational material created by Dr. Gilberto Hernández Quirós. 2011 15
  16. 16. WISDOMWisdom is an extrapolative and non-deterministic, non- probabilistic process. It calls upon all the previous levels of consciousness, and specifically upon special types of human programming (moral, ethical codes, etc.). It beckons to give us understanding about which there has previously been no understanding, and in doing so, goes far beyond understanding itself. It is the essence of philosophical probing. Unlike the previous four levels, it asks questions to which there is no (easily-achievable) answer, and in some cases, to which there can be no humanly-known answer period. Wisdom is therefore, the process by which we also discern, or judge, between right and wrong, good and bad.Educational material created by Dr. Gilberto Hernández Quirós. 2011 16
