10 Mar categorize

When we generalize in the learning process we often place a new thing or concept in a hierarchy along with other like things. For example, when we see an automobile we have never seen before, we might categorize it along with other like automobiles, say, as a sporty model or as a European style. When we lump things together in categories (or classes in object-oriented systems), they can inherit characteristics of other things of the same class (for example FAST and TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ME).
