1. Introduction1.1. Background and Motivation
Mathematics has traditionally been viewed as an objective and abstract discipline, emphasizing formal structures and logical reasoning detached from human experiences and semantics. This abstraction has enabled the development of universal theories but has also led to a disconnect between mathematical concepts and realworld applications. With the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence (AI), there is an increasing need to reevaluate the foundations of mathematics to ensure it remains relevant and meaningful in the context of humanAI interactions.
Prof. Yucong Duan critiques the conventional approach to mathematics, proposing the DIKWP Semantic Mathematics framework as a revolutionary alternative that integrates semantics, purpose, dynamism, and human consciousness into mathematical practice.
1.2. Overview of the DIKWP Framework
The DIKWP framework is based on five core components:
Data (Sameness)
Information (Difference)
Knowledge (Completeness)
Wisdom
Purpose
These components represent an evolutionary hierarchy that mirrors human cognitive development and emphasizes the centrality of semantics in mathematical abstraction. The framework advocates for a mathematics that is humancentered, purposeful, dynamic, and grounded in realworld semantics.
1.3. Objectives of the Document

2. Foundational Concepts2.1. Critique of Traditional Mathematics
Abstraction Away from Semantics: Traditional mathematics often abstracts away from concrete semantics, focusing on symbols and structures devoid of specific meanings. This detachment can lead to mathematical constructs that lack relevance to realworld applications.
ThirdParty Objectiveness: By adopting a thirdparty viewpoint to achieve objectiveness, traditional mathematics ignores human subjectivity and consciousness, resulting in a disconnect from the realities of human experiences and cognition.
Illusion of Completeness: The pursuit of completeness and objectiveness through separation from human subjectivity overlooks the inherent human basis of mathematical hypotheses and theories.
2.2. Importance of Semantics in Mathematics
Semantics as Central: Semantics should be both the source and target of mathematical abstraction, forming a continuous cycle where meanings inform abstraction, and abstraction enhances understanding of meanings.
Reconnecting with Reality: Integrating semantics ensures that mathematical constructs remain relevant and applicable to realworld problems, enhancing their usefulness and impact.
Enhancing Understanding: A focus on semantics facilitates deeper comprehension of mathematical concepts and fosters meaningful engagement with mathematics.
2.3. HumanCentered Approach
Inclusion of Human Consciousness: Mathematics should acknowledge human beings as the center, incorporating human cognition and subjectivity into mathematical constructs.
"BUG" Theory of Consciousness: Inconsistencies or "bugs" in reasoning are essential for cognitive growth and proper abstraction, serving as catalysts for reflection and development.
Purposeful and Dynamic Mathematics: Mathematics should be purposeful, reflecting the reality that humans use it to achieve specific goals, and dynamic, evolving with the changing world.
3. Components of the DIKWP Framework
The DIKWP framework consists of five interconnected components that represent an evolutionary hierarchy mirroring human cognitive development.
