Is there a universal “knowledge”

The “knowledge” is in the data.

In other words, predictions are made directly from this data stream, and these predictions are all that you need to represent “knowledge.”

That said, each agent (person) is exposed to a different subset of this data.

Therefore, everyone’s “knowledge” is personal. No?

What does this say about any sort of ground truth about knowledge? Ones “knowledge” may be in direct conflict with anothers. And both may be correct?

So, knowledge can conflict. Well, actually, since knowledge is completely subjective, there is really no universal ground truth to it. It’s personal.

What then about “facts?” Aren’t facts, thought to be bits of knowledge that are “true?” Wait … Oh no … ALTERNATIVE FACTS!!!
