How To Distinguish Between Data, Information & Kno
Data is meaningless.
When we add structure, context and meaning to data it becomes information.
Knowledge is the use and application of this information and how we interpret it.
Data - 60
Information - Marks awarded for an exam
Knowledge - This means I need to get 60/180 marks in order to pass this exam.
