KNOWLEDGE is a function of information, culture, and skills:
Knowledge = f (Information, Culture, Skills)
The function specifies the relationship between knowledge on the one side and information,
culture, and skills on the other.
In this context information comprises the meaning given to data or information obtained according to certain conventions; this is also known as explicit knowledge. On the one hand, culture is the total amount of standards, values, views, principles, and attitudes of people that underscore their behaviour and functioning. On the other hand, skills are related to the capability, ability, and personal experience of people; they relate to what people can do, know, and understand.
