FFAI Evolution + Animals

animal intelligence

If we want to understand intelligence, it may be useful to look at how it started in the animal kingdom.

object recognition, skill learning, etc. are easily seen to be present in many animals

animal language

tool use


transmission of knowledge



episodic memory

other examples

some observations

evolutionary view

why do we have intelligence?

traditional answer was religious

modern answer: it is "adaptive", i.e., it helps survival and procreation

brains are expensive to build and maintain

which capabilities came first?

what was the driving factor?

we'll talk about evolution later again
