Title: Learned behavior
Post by: Art on September 10, 2017, 12:24:47 pm
Apparently we humans and robots are not the only ones who are capable of learning new things.

See how a cat has learned how traffic signals operate. Very cool indeed! (

Now watch as a dog shows a similar learned behavior. Notice, it could have easily followed those girls across but didn't because it saw the light was still red. Even when the light turned green, the dog looked toward his right checking to verify that the traffic had indeed stopped. Good stuff! (

 Those are special animals. They are the type we should clone.  Birth control should not be applied to them.

They live in the city. Are they (and we) not a product of their (and our) environment?

Oddly enough, a lot of animal behavior is apparently passed by the parents to new offspring. Gulls grasping clams then flying high, dropping them to the beach below, repeating a few times until the shell opens so the gulls can feed.
Many other animals, birds, fish are capable of incredible degrees of learning and often passing that knowledge on or sharing it.

And we think we're the only smart ones... ;)

Apes are good at this - how about seasoned potatoes ?

Years ago I learnt about this story on a UK nature program with David Attenborough. Here's the gist of it in an interesting short read...

I predict that they were trained.  but same dif right?  the animal still knows.

Learning animals are not rare. But teaching animals are... Teaching is a more complicated task. There must examples though.

I have a smart dog and I can tell you for sure that if it could speak, they would learn like us. Body enables too. But brain too, ex. parrots can speak but not become human.

So yes all that, CNN better mapping alocating of grouping neywork classes and images, and all that techy stuff, matters, and more importantly actual functions, like rewards, senses, etc. I think that's why animals like food more, and not games. But they can focus on games too lots.
