Sue Savage-Rumbaugh is a researcher who has studied/worked with Kanzi since he was a baby Bonobo. Bonobo is a species Pygmy Chimpanzee. Kanzi has been taught a vocabulary of about 400 words which can be typed using a special keyboard of lexigrams (geometric symbols), and he can respond to spoken sentences.
Since all work and no play would make Kanzi a dull chimp, he started playing the videogame Ms. Pac-Man!
He’s quite good too! This is Kanzi and Rose Sevcik from part of the video “Kanzi: An Ape of a Genius”. I had to figure all that out on my own, thanks Google, but the video is via Kotaku.
