Is that video part of the game-theory paper? I can't tell. (There's an image of a similar game in the paper, but the rules look different.)
In any case, can someone explain how the chimp is doing what it's doing in the video? The numbers 1-9 are covered up by squares, and the chimp instantly appears to see all the numbers, remember them, and touch the squares in the right order.
It must being doing something different, though, because such a feat seems almost impossible even for a human, at the rate that he sees and covers the numbers. Half the time he doesn't even seem to look across the whole screen.
Are these pre-memorized sequences?
