# What are the differences between sensing, perception and learning

I see people are using a lot the terms sensing, perception, and learning together in the context of artificial intelligence. It seems to me perception is a more board term that may include sensing and learning. What are their definitions and how do they interact with each other? Any paper references are highly appreciated.

• i could be wrong about this ... perhaps something like an intelligent thermostat in learn mode sense room temperature, perceive that the temperature is dropping, learn that the human will activate the furnace if the temperature drops some more .... sense - read raw data ... perceive - make sense of data ... learn - determine what is the required action based on perception Nov 8, 2020 at 0:19
• My baby robot sensed something hot nearby; he perceived that something was bad, but not very sure; so he used his finger to verify; his finger was burnt: he *learned that next time he should not use his robot finger to verify, perhaps use a thermometer instead. Nov 8, 2020 at 1:55
