In previous section, we discussed about learnability and its appropriateness. Many researchers used term learnability interchangeably with usability. A more learnable system can accumulate more knowledge and can accomplish complex tasks and solve complex problems swiftly. Here by learnability we mean—ability of intelligent system to adapt new things and exhibiting creativity with reference to unknown scenario that is not just part of knowledge base.
