This is the first attempt at making a blog. I have been a technologist for the last 25 years and I specialize in database and BI technologies. I’m attempting to transition my career into AI, and this blog exists to document my experience and my observations.
A basic information model:
data -> information -> knowledge
A similar model for data technologies
databases -> business intelligence -> artificial intelligence
As databases store vast quantities of data, business intelligence models like facts and dimensions organize this data to create information. These models*, at least at a conceptual level, can be transformed into expert knowledge for intelligent systems o AI.
A final stage of this data information model would be wisdom. However, a system to build wisdom has not been developed. The final state of the model would be:
data -> information -> knowledge -> wisdom
*AI models are not actually similar to business intelligence models. BI models are based on multidimensional or tabular arrangement of data and meaning embedded in the design. AI models are based on statistical methods like machine learning, neural networks or binary trees. But I will still rely and build upon BI knowledge to develop my knowledge of AI.
