Ayumu and Ai: Studies in Animal Intelligence: Ai is a thoroughly modern

numbers, to work with tools, and even how to use a computer to earn coins t=

Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, study Ai=B9s son, Ayumu, to see
if he will prove capable of picking up the same skills by simply watching
