Good to see you have discovered the joys of the Daily Mail Borry.
Following your example I find that they are going on about crows again. Perhaps they think that crows have the intelligence needed to benefit from the Mail's articles.
Anyway it seems that the wicked scientists are once again experimenting with corvid bribery and training them to work slot machines.
'The open source experiment is designed to look further into the brains of corvids.
‘The more people trying different things, the faster we'll all figure out how to work cooperatively with crows,’ hacker and writer Joshua Klein writes on the Crow Box website.
‘Once we’ve got the system optimised for teaching coin collection, we can move to seeing how flexibly they can learn other tasks, like collecting garbage, sorting through discarded electronics, or maybe even search and rescue.’
They have provided a helpful illustration for those of us with a lower intelligence level of the average crow.
I like the bit about 'search and rescue'. Perhaps they're thinking of replacing the helicopters with crows. That would be a bargain.
Or perhaps they've been reading Mr Harper's pirate crow theories and will be putting them to crew our naval ships, or ship, assuming we've got any left.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/ ... anuts.html
