Data, Information and Knowledge


Sometimes explaining the difference between data, information and knowledge in the context of data mining becomes confusing. I have created three slides that I use to explain this difference. I am going to share them today. The first slide talks about what is data. The second slide shows how data becomes information. Finally the third slide explains what is knowledge.

  1. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!
