Ayumu and Ai [electronic resource]: Studies in Animal Intelligence

Mico/NHK Enterprises
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Ai is a thoroughly modern chimpanzee: researchers have taught her to be familiar with language and numbers, to work with tools, and even how to use a computer to earn coins to buy treats from a vending machine. In this program, scientists at the Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, study Ai's son, Ayumu, to see if he will prove capable of picking up the same skills by simply watching his mother and other chimps-and perhaps even surpass them. The astonishing results of Ayumu's efforts provide new insights into animal-and human-intelligence.
