Level up your knowledge through the DIKW (data / information / knowledge / wisdom) pyramid

What is the DIKW Pyramid?

Definition: The DIKW 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". Not all versions of the DIKW model reference all four components (earlier versions not including data, later versions omitting or downplaying wisdom), and some include additional components. This is the definition from Wikipedia.
