In medieval times, Alchemists hoped to convert base metals into the noble metal goal through the use of a Philosopher's Stone.  Today, in the field of information science, we talk about Information Alchemy, converting data into information and then into knowledge.   Some people even add a 4th stage of converting knowledge into wisdom[i], but that will be for another blog post.   Data is defined as the raw characters or numbers, whereas information is defined as the…See More
