One of the coolest things about clicker training is that there’s still a million things I can train Bubs to do even when he’s off/injured/lame. If anything, a setback just makes me go back to basic, fundamental cues and behaviors.
When you intern at Wolf Park you can eventually get cleared to do Through The Fence training with the animals. We train all our wolves with positive reinforcement and teach basic behaviours such as targeting, sitting and lying down. When you reach a Level 2 clearance, you can work on more advanced behaviours such as bow and back up.
Here is Fiona and Bicho and Kanti working on some basic behaviours. As you can see, they do seem to enjoy the interaction and the treats! It’s a great form of enrichment for them!
“Ugh….Quark! Do something to cheer him up! Sing or something?!”
“Yes my Council!”
Any tiny/microscope bots like Quark, Trepan, Rung, Perceptor and even Clicker can be viewed like Pearls in the Functionalist era since they look physically weak, aren’t that threatening and they fit in the socially acceptable class.
Yesterday was a disaster and I completely forgot to post this, but new video’s up.
Like I said in the opening, I have no idea what the technical name for this is so I’m calling it name differentiation- asking the huas to recognize which cues apply to them and which do not. This is the first time I’ve attempted this with them in such a structured way and I was floored by how well they handled it. Obviously these clips are “highlights,” there were definitely a few times where they messed up but that’s okay, we ain’t all perfect! Also I’m making a blooper reel so you will be seeing the not-so-perfect moments in the future.
sorry i’ve been a bit silent lately, i’m about to move in with my bff and his dog and cat. gon party all day everyday
i’ve also spent the past week experimenting with making a MUD/interactive fiction engine in node.js, probably nothing serious will come out of it but i just felt nostalgic about my Crab Nicholson days
ANYWAY i’ll get back to Cookie Clicker and NeverEnding Legacy when things settle down a bit. thanks everyone for the valuable feedback on the Legacy alpha, i’ll be sure to use it to make a cool-ass beta release
