Learning is the activity of gaining knowledge or skill by studying, practicing, being taught, or experiencing something.

Learning enhances the awareness of the subjects of the study.

The ability of Learning is possessed by humans, some animals, and Artificial Intelligence-enabled systems. Learning is categorized as follows:

Auditory Learning#

Auditory Learning is Learning by listening and hearing. For example, students listening to recorded audio lectures.

Episodic Learning #

Episodic Learning is Learning by remembering sequences of events that one has witnessed or experienced. This is linear and orderly.

Motor Learning#

Motor Learning is learning by precise movement of muscles. For example, picking objects, Writing, etc.

Observational Learning #

Relational Learning #

Relational Learning involves learning to differentiate among various stimuli on the basis of relational properties, rather than absolute properties. For Example, Adding "little less" salt at the time of cooking potatoes that came up salty last time, when cooked with adding say a tablespoon of salt.
