Many cognitive scientists now agree that artificial cognition might be probably achieved developmentally, starting from a set of basic-level premature capabilities and incrementally self-extending itself with experience through discrete or continuous stages bred with experience. Although we are still far from seeing an artificial full-fledged self-extending cognitive system, the literature has provided promising examples and demonstrations. Nonetheless, not much thought is given to the modeling of how an artificial vision system, an important part of a developing cognitive system, can develop itself in a similar manner. In this article, we dwell upon the issue of a developing vision system, the relevant problems and possible solutions whenever possible.
