-|  \\ Understanding  | The phenomenon of "understanding" has been neglected in AI and AGIModern AI systems do not //understand//. \\ Yet the concept seems crucial when talking about human intelligence; the concept holds explanatory power - we do not assign responsibilities for a task to someone or something with a demonstrated lack of understanding of the task. Moreover, the level of understanding can be evaluated. \\ Understanding of a particular phenomenon <m>phi</m> is the potential to perform actions and answer questions with respect to <m>phi</m>.

|  | \\ 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). \\ Is it possible to explain something that you don't understand?  | |  | \\ 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). \\ Is it possible to explain something that you don't understand?  |
|  \\ 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" that seems to be useless for anything, but can in fact turn out to be useful at any point, as for instance using such trivia to wow others with one's knowledge of trivia.)   || |  \\ Learning   | Acquisition of information in a form that enables more successful completion of tasks.
