Exactly. "Submarine 'out-swims' whale" would be a perfectly clear headline, too. Only on slashdot would a complaint about the word "swim" get +5.
If you have an advantage that delays your death, but don't breed during the respite, then you are irrelevant to that aspect of evolution.
Not if you helped your kids in that time.
Any doubters should google about Clair Patterson, and failed attempts to bribe him to keep the public in the dark about environmental lead. He saved IQ points for all of us.
Arimaa might make an interesting turing test. Your sig made me think of captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepard telling the story of the time he got a job testing the intelligence of a captive orca. The orca got all answers right immediately after training, then suddenly started getting them all wrong. Paul realized the Orca was testing him, too.
nothing I saw that indicates how much training the speech recognition needs.
Translators as a whole will never have enough training, since it's an art not perfected even by humans. When an idiom's literal translation is nonsense, the translator's job is about imperfect trade-offs.

Weedon suspects the hackers were trained at Western investment banks, giving them the know-how to identify their targets and draft convincing phishing emails.

What I got out of the article was "So we see complicated dynamics when we allow the full range of payoffs to evolve,” Plotkin said. “One of the interesting results is that the Prisoner’s Dilemma game itself is unstable and is replaced by other games [stag-hunt & snowdrift].

what is it that makes H. sapiens such a successful species?
Start with the book Guns, Germs, and Steel.
So your mayo money isn't used to do this to chickens: https://www.google.com/search?...
Oops *soldier. Anyway, John offers to work (40 hours a week?) for rent. Bob says ok. After they have an agreed upon deal going for a few days, Bob says "Our deal was 40 hours a week 'for rent' (he made air-quotes and smiled). You have not been paying for my food that you have been eating. It'll be 80 hours a week now, making goods and services for me. Or get off my island."
It's a wiki. Do it better.
