In a knowledge society, knowledge forms a major component of any human activity. Economic, social, cultural, and all other human activities become dependent on a huge volume of knowledge and information.
A knowledge society is one that creates, shares and uses knowledge for the prosperity and well being of its people.
It has to do with a society in which the conditions for generating knowledge and processing information have been substantially changed by a technological revolution focused on information processing, knowledge generation, and information technologies.”
