Those numbers tests aren’t that hard. Just like a talking bird, they can repeat the words but they don’t understand what they mean... The babies can do it faster because that’s all they know. My brothers can play guitar hero on expert levels with no mistakes because they haven’t seen it any other way. Kids brains have less bullshit to cloud their judgment.

Surely time is a big factor here, if the monkey has been doing this for weeks/months every day, yet the human is starting from scratch, also the pay off for the monkey is greater as he gets food. I'm sure with time the human would be as good especially if the pay off was $£. However this is very fascinating. I wonder how the chimp knows numerical order as this must of been learned before hand????

Neural implant enhances brain function in monkeys. Then they drugged the monkeys with cocaine to dampen their cognitive processes and decrease their performance on the matching test. The scientists found that despite the effects of the cocaine, the MIMO implant was able to help the monkeys exceed their ordinary performance. http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/15/3337178/brain-neural-implant-monkeys-cocaine

Rats and then monkeys. Monkey can inject human brain stem cells. Human–animal hybrids. There already such experiments with smart mice-human hybrids. But it's not ethical for primates.

So sad 😞. I wonder if the human race will ever change our attitude towards how we treat animals. We are loosing so many species by how we treat them. Who cares about the research just leave them alone in there natural habitat. We only need to step in if they are being poached or declining in numbers because of some other reason. I really feel I need to do something to help the world wide problem of what we humans are doing to animals but I don’t know what to do.

I have an argument about memory and language. This whole thing is debunked because the reason why we have a crap memory now, isn't because of language, but writing. In the times of the greeks, they can spend days reciting books, sing hundreds of songs without missing a beat. Because they had amazing memories. However, Socrates said to his apprentice "Put that pen down. It will make your memory worse!" We know he said that because the apprentice wrote that down.

I have a couple problems with this theory. First, I am not convinced chimps are better at this than humans. Ai lost to Michael. Sure, she was old, but she was also only doing 3 numbers and it was Michael's first time. I think there are plenty of people out there, who with enough training could do as well as an average chimp. They even say in the video they don't compete humans against chimps so how exactly do they rule out that we are not capable of the same performance? Secondly, even if we believe that chimps have this ability and humans do not, this doesn't mean that our common ancestor had this ability. In the same way that humans are able to talk doesn't mean our common ancestor could talk, just because chimps have this memory ability doesn't mean our common ancestor did. This hypothesis that we lost this ability to gain speech is ridiculous because we have no reason to believe our ancestor had this ability in the first place.

Oh, ffs, because society and social skill, along with creativity, are our ACTUAL biological advantages, not intelligence or "being stronger and faster". But you've been misinformed about our very nature; that cutting each other's throats, and being greedy and selfish are your way, when in fact; working together to creatively solve problems are only Main strength, and Purpose. And these things require Language, much more than f ing mathematics, and route memorization. There was a time when people knew this; a mythical time called "before the 80s". Don't be so foolish to think it would be so hard, or take so long, to know how to work together again.

These test results cannot be correct & here are few reasons why (in layman terms): a) these chimps are trained & have become so good at taking these tests. If the human participant stays there long enough & gets the same amount of practice that the apes got, you can guess who will do better b) the apes are provided food, water & shelter, so their mind can be free to focus on the task at hand c) they are withheld food unless they perform, therefore they are conditioned to "think" that their survival depends on completing this task using classical conditioning techniques introduced by Skinner. In other words, they don't think they have a choice. The short of it, this is nonsense & mere entertaining mainstream science! Do not believe even for a moment that the ape is smarter than you, or I'll personally visit you & slap some sense into your highly evolved, beautiful, but heavily misinformed head LOL

Tina G Vardanyan this isn’t the only case where they have shown memory this impressive, and in most cases they were not dependent on the test to survive. Also, a lot of people seem to think that a human could achieve this level but it is simply not true, plenty of studies have been done on human memory and achieving a short term memory that impressive is not possible through training.

This is so inaccurate. It's nothing to say that these handful of chimps who do this for a job, literally, and every day. Of course they'll be good at it. If you had a human that practiced that much and made money for getting it right, you'd have a phenom in no time. This is just silly, not really scientifically significant.

Way to summarize a profound understanding came to through decades of research with facile anecdotal nonsense at the end pushing peta agendas that pretends humans are no better than any other animal. Humanity is obviously better by the basis of Darwinian logic acceptance of such a study implies. Humanity leveraged their mental capacities by externalizing knowledge onto many mediums including language, and a few other reasons at least. Attaching narrow presuppositions defiles the final presentation.

I genuinely don’t think it’s Impossible. The young chimp has been doing this almost since he was born and even grew up watching his mother do it before he started. I think if a human child was in these conditions (as inhuman as that would be) the results would be similar if not the same. Kids like science so put it in the App Store and let some try it out.

I still think Chimps would be able to have an imagination and visualize their future... they have "near photographic memory" after all. They would just imagine their future with images from their memory without the need for words as labels to label those images. They'd still be able to identify who their family is based on their look, instead of words.

Its weird that he admits to never having a test done comparing humans and chimps, it sort of invalidates the whole theory because the chimps can simply be so good at the task because they've practiced so much, perhaps if a human took the same test and practiced over and the same results would occur

The so called scientist said we were weak and kicked out of the trees. Nice guess and rather negative towards his own species. How about we sacrificed over time some of the physical strength we had for language and all the other wonderful things we have that the stupid chimps do not have now ? Perhaps a few of us were sick of trees trees trees and wanted more and flipped off our idiot cousins while moving up the food chain. This monkey fool is a human hating chimp ass licker. Perhaps we left the trees out of the creation of a greater maximum of courage being developed compared to our tree staying idiots ? There could have been positive reasons for the changes or negative ones. Being pro human and anti chimp comparatively is where my bias originates and frankly I am sick of scientists telling us we are an overall negative species on this planet and conveniently not one other creature shares that type of label. Fk anti human humans !
