Specialized Learning in Primates

I've started working on my primate web page, but it isn't here, it's at Harvard since that's where I'm being funded to study them. You might also want to go look at my dissertation (especially chapters 9 and 10) or my recent publications.

Wynn chooses a
tool This picture is too cute to throw out, even though it has nothing to do with me. It's a cotton-top tamarin named Wynn running one of Laurie Santos' tool-using experiments. Wynn has succesfully chosen the better tool configuration for getting a marshmallow. More information is available on the Harvard Primate Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory webpage.

Of course, all my AI monkeys run on linux, unlike some people's Evil Monkeys.

(Though really I develop using Lispworks which will run on either platform.)
