AI & animals

Research from Imperial College London, the University of Cambridge, UK, and Google’s DeepMind, suggests that observing animal behaviour may assist learning by artificial intelligence (AI).

The researcher’s analysis, including examples of animal experiments with birds and bears, argues that common sense in humans is based on a set of basic capacities that are also present in other animals.

In the findings, published in CellPress, the authors said: “Animal cognition supplies a compendium of well-understood, non-linguistic, intelligent behaviour; it suggests experimental methods for evaluation and benchmarking; and it can guide environment and task design.”
