 |  Explanation  | When performed by an Agent, the ability to transform knowledge about X from a formulation primarily (or only) good for execution with respect to X to a formulation good for being communicated (typically involving some form of linearization, incremental introduction of concepts and issues, in light of an intended receiving Agent with a particular a-priori knowledge).   | |  Explanation  | When performed by an Agent, the ability to transform knowledge about X from a formulation primarily (or only) good for execution with respect to X to a formulation good for being communicated (typically involving some form of linearization, incremental introduction of concepts and issues, in light of an intended receiving Agent with a particular a-priori knowledge).   |
-|  Learning   | Acquisition of information in a form that enables more successful completion of tasks. We call information in such a form "knowledge" or "practical knowledge". (There is also the concept of "impractical knowledge", which sometimes people feel must be the case of "useless trivia" whose only usage seems to be to wow others with, but in fact that is not impractical since it can be used in practice to wow others.)   |+|  Learning   | Acquisition of information in a form that enables more successful completion of tasks.
