Wisdom is applied knowledge

Still on the topic of intelligence and wisdom….

This one is very abstract and hard to get my head around, you might do better, but little old me is struggling.


Industrial Analytics provides the shift from the past through the present and into the future based on high fidelity models(from experience). Providing a new dimension to the workers tools, and thru the decision they are about to make. Combining the “Future” providing answers to “what will happen” with the recommended actions to take.

Providing the answer to “What should I do Next?” with experience, fore thought, and understanding. Operation Intelligence also aligns with this by providing a screens, presentation of the situation or “know Questions” with context and awareness.

You got that right?

My point is, there are a lot of people coming at this topic from many different angles to try and get computers to give us the information we need, in the context we need, to make wise decisions. Both about the now and in the future.

AI can only fill the gaps so much for the longest time. It can really on work on the data it has. A human can gather data from more than hard sensors.

Quick example, lets say the process only uploads temperature data. AI is sifting that data and is seeing if there are patterns in the noise and if there are any clear trends.
All well and good, but the human is standing there and can smell something burning. Where the burning is coming from does not have a temperature sensor, so the AI brain has no clue about the impending doom.
The human is making wise decisions based on his knowledge of the last time he smelt something burning.

In short, AI is only as good as the data you feed it.
As I have said in the past, big data is the key (food) for AI.
(And yes, I know, smell sensors are a ‘thing’ and they are coming as well).
