Why can't (current) machines reason like Euclid
or even human toddlers?

This is part of the Meta-Morphogenesis (M-M) project. Recorded video talk presented at the event: ai-cogsci-bio-sloman.webm
(56MB -- approximately 42min)
The web page, covers a lot more material than the recording,
and was revised and extended after the recording had been made.

Later, links referring to parts of the video (listed below) were inserted on the web page.

2. While doing the recording I switched between virtual desktops, with the text file displayed in a web browser. Unfortunately I forgot to move the top of the browser window out of the recording area, thereby wasting precious screen space.
3. After the event I broke the video into shorter extracts, listed above, now also referenced from the main site.
At some later date I may produce a new, more carefully planned, recording, or collection of recordings on this topic, not constrained by the 40 minute workshop presentation limit.
ORIGINAL VIDEO PARTS
The full video includes these three files concatenated:
I may later expand the recording with extracts from this video on Nicaraguan
which I think supports the claims in the lecture about epigenesis and prior evolution of internal languages.
