Computers calculate – people cogitate, computers turn data into information, people turn information into knowledge to comprehend our world. It was a balance that worked for a long time, but…
The year 2020 is on track to produce 59 zetabytes of data. (59,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)—over 50 times the number of stars in the observable universe.
And still, the process that turns that data info practical knowledge takes place only in the human mind – one brain at a time.
The old balance has been lost.
