Knowledge base can be defined as the database of knowledge. It comprises of several factors including information, intelligence, skill set and experience. Experience is the most important factor amongst these. This paper talks about the model to calculate the knowledge of an entity in terms of mathematics. Knowledge will be calculated by taking the above mentioned four elements. This will be beneficial for any organizations in the sense that they will be able to calculate their current knowledge and the knowledge required at a particular instance. This will in turn save the wastage of resources that the organization holds knowledge can be created through various factors and utilization of resources of the organization. The second benefit will be reduction in the amount of time taken to create knowledge. These two benefits shall be discussed in detail in the later sections.
