Machine learning ignores progressive nature of human learning

More often than not, a machine learning model is tasked with approximating a mapping based on the entirety of the available data. In contrast, people first learn in steps, gradually, progressive. They don’t attempt to write eloquent English before learning to connect high-frequency words. However, the key to developing commonsense might be to incrementally constructively anchor new concepts on previously internalized ones. More hardcore child development psychology can even inform a broader approach.
