Perhaps the difference doesn't just lie in the shortterm attention/imagination tradeoff hypothesis when it pertains to this game, what if it lies in the differences between human/chimp visual processing? What if a chimps visual field is perceived at low resolution across the entire field of vision (dispersed equally between central and peripheral vision) and humans have high resolution central vision and low resolution peripheral vision? I noticed that, as I was playing along with Michael, I was darting my eyes across the screen (placing my central, focal vision on each number), and there just wasn't enough time to do that when they were on screen for only .5 seconds (but I could still remember what I HAD looked at). Maybe the reason chimps are better is partially because they can process the ENTIRE screen (and thus register the contents of the screen) because they're not "limited" by an enhanced central field of vision? It's the same thing on brain games, where they had the animals go on stage during the performance, and no one saw them because they were outside their field of PERCEPTION. Perhaps that contributes to the discrepancy of human and chimp scores? It'd be interesting to put this to the test by monitoring the gaze of chimps and humans performing this game (to see if chimps take the entire screen in at once and if humans bounce their gaze between each number.?

"Because we can talk." The same with everything else. We have senses and athose interfere. I recently sent the Dalai Lama a tweet saying that vision prevents us from seeing. Sensory input creates impressions and impressions are never correct. That's because they can be manipulated. I stopped the video at "because we can talk." When we reduce experience to words we have already lost the meaning. When man creates meaning it is never the true reality.

How many hours have the chimps practiced that task? From my experience with video games, I suspect about 10 hours of playing that game over a couple weeks and I would be able to perform at that level or higher. It would be interesting to motivate humans to practice those games for a long time and then compare.

making a hypothesis and testing only half the assumptions is not very scientific. To have any sense the "scientist" should have done that exact experiment of putting both a number of humans and chimps under the same training and test conditions and see after thousands of tests who would perform consistently better. As it is, it's just a ridiculous speculation.

I've always defined intelligence as this. Intelligence is the rate that an entity can solve a problem with desirably zero familiarity with said problem prior to presentation. Debate that as you will. Edit: I'll make it less heart attack-inducing for some; intelligences aren't a linear concept. There's a statistical mesh between certain types.

Not necessarily the correct direction to go! To say the chimp has better short term memory is to assume that the way our minds use VISION is the same. It does make sense that memory may have been changed to allow us to speak; HOWEVER, It could be NON GENETIC. EXPLANATION: If you are a reader...you MUST focus on each word one line at a time. it is nearly impossible to read all words on a normal page simultaneously. but the chimp is not trained to focus on one character at a time, then compute it's meaning in combination with other characters in some arrangement of proximity close by....humans are taught that ....therefore we do NOT excel at the task of looking at a tree with fruit in it and counting how many there were, colors, sizes, shapes. CONCLUSION: it may not be the cognitive ability to "REMEMBER" but the cognitive habit of "USING OUR EYES" To focus strongly on each character that slows us down. Harold

Any human can train to be as good as the chimpanzees. Still, this video is good for people with a problem to recognize that the capacity of learning exists in all animals, just something the human ego doesn't always want to see (since it shows the truth: it is at the same level, just like to imagine it has an 'upper hand'). No individual being comes with a fixed intelligence, and there are no actual limits to its capacity. This is easily understood by recognizing that intelligence is not confined to a certain place, like the brain etc. IT IS an inherent feature in the whole existence. Let's say you isolate a part of reality, to say that only that is what is intelligent. Now, as soon as you do that, you no longer have anything for that part to interact with!

There's a number of issues which suggests that the human exchange hypothesis isn't credible. Language in exchange for losing short term memory pfft bullshit. 1)How can you have a hypothesis about comparison between human and chimp brain without doing the test on both humans and chimps. (Test only done on chimps) 2) Michael won against AI even though shes been practicing that test all her life (hypothesis flop) 3) Michael against ayuma (the best chimp in the sanctuary with years of practice) Michael loses, that doesn't mean your hypothesis is right 4) should be tested with a large sample size of humans and chimps 5) I can guarantee you there's at least 1000s of people that can ace that test against ayuma 6) other controlled variables that 7) we were weak so we left (were pushed out of the trees), that doesn't make sense. How did we end up weak and they ended up strong (cause and lead up). Other variables that weren't in place that to support hypothesis (that I can't think of right now).
