The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

According to the local people, the calico was homeless and happened to find food in the lynx’s enclosure. The lynx did not reject her, rather she became her best friend. It seems as if the cat needs the lynx as much as she needs her. The [St Petersburg] zoo adopted the cat so that she and her lynx friend could live together.

As a computer science researcher and software developer, I am trying to imagine what it would take to get a computer to mimic that kind of problem solving ability.

To us adult humans, the thinking going on in that infant's brain seems trivial, but from a computer science point of view, perhaps not so trivial to implement.

Don't believe me? Then let's see you write the code on any platform of your choice. :wink:

Oh I believe you. Although it's not my own field, I did dabble in amateur programming as a young lad. I think the answer is some kind of AI. The programmers who created AlphaZero were not great chess players, but they made a program that not only could beat its own creators at chess, but any other chess player whether human or machine.

So the key is not for you to figure out how to program that series of movements but to find a way to create an algorithm that can learn through trial and error.
