Best Animal Minds – Jan 14

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 smartest creatures on Earth? Should this be obvious given our problem-solving ability and big brains? This presentation will look at some examples of animal intelligence, explore language studies in animals, and attempt to view human intelligence within a grander environmental context.

Our speaker, Julie Hui, is a PhD candidate studying the evolution of cooperation in UC Berkeley's Anthropology Department. She is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
