comment Is it easier for people to remember longer words than words mixed with symbols?
I gathered the wisdom of the comic; I was simply pointing out that while small relative to character length, the character set size is still a factor. I had a metaphor in mind at time of writing, of there being no magic bullet and thus no one correct answer to this question, hence the inclusion of this tiny factor. But in hindsight I should've just let the various users' answers complete the whole picture and focused on the factor I found most prominent. Deleting the distracting section now.

edited out that adhoc equation. Kept the point that increasing the character set increases the total problem space, but deleted any indication of it being the whole solution to this problem.

eh, standard ASCII is 256, so not to unreasonable. Either way, that last bit was just a supplement; a nod to other possible answers to this question. The IAC part is my proper answer. Should I delete the tangential parts of my answer?

comment Why do some people seem to disregard the choice of doing nothing (The Zero Choice)?
functional fixedness seems closely connected to what your asking. Might wanna try googling that so as to better clear up your terminology. I don't think this has been brought up yet in the meta, but personally I view the introduction of self-made terminology (e.g. the Zero Choice) as being very counter productive to answering a question.

comment Computational models of early learning in children
Alternatively, you could the term 'plausible algorithms' instead of 'computational models', since the latter tends to be task dependent whilst the former is a paradigm in which to build models.

comment Computational models of early learning in children
In that case I'd specify a domain of interest (e.g. Computational models of pronoun acquisition early learning in children), since a general model is currently quite out of reach.

comment Computational models of early learning in children
What does 'early learning' mean is this context? It sounds way too broad, but perhaps that is due to my relative ignorance of developmental psychology.

Took out explanation of theory (we should know). switched hypothesis and theory, and add picture

comment Are there any connectionist models that integrate reinforcement and fully supervised learning?
I made a few corrections in order to clear up ambiguities. To be clear, both proposed learning mechanisms are predicting something, but predicting the next state (a matrix of pixels in this case) doesn't require TD since the correct answer is immediately visible in the next time step.
