The potential energy of knowledge flow

Hai Zhuge, Weiyu Guo, Xiang Li
2007 Concurrency and Computation  
Potential energy and hydraulic pressure cause water to flow along a river or through pipes. Voltage causes electrical energy to flow through wires. What causes knowledge to flow?  ...  This paper proposes the notion of knowledge energy as the driving force behind the formation of an autonomous knowledge flow network, and explores the underlying principles.  ...  with low potential energy, knowledge flows from high-energy nodes to low-energy nodes.  ...
