Learning Unlimited: Animal Intelligence and What It Means for Humans

Thu, November 15, 2018 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


UC Berkeley anthropologist Julie Hui brings us this discussion on the relation of intelligence in animals and humans.  Human beings tend to prefer cross-species measurements that put us at the top of the scale. Intelligence is one such measure. Are humans really the most intelligent creatures on the planet? Should this be obvious given our problem-solving ability and big brains? This talk will look at some examples of animal intelligence, explore language studies in animals, and attempt to place human intelligence within our own environmental context.
