It’s been a while, eh? No worries — I have no plans to abandon this site.
Here’s a video from Japanese television in which a chimp (?) plays Ms. Pac-Man.
I wish I could understand what the narrator is saying. I think it would add a great deal of meaning. It’s clear that the researchers are teaching the animal, and that the animal is learning, and even that it has some conception of what is happening. But I wonder to what degree the hand movements are merely reflex. I’d love to see a longer uncut video, and to be able to hear more about the actual results fo the research.
