Ayumu (Born in 2000) is a chimpanzee currently living at the Primate Research Institute of Kyoto University.

He is the son of chimpanzee Ai, and has been a participant since infanthood in the Ai Project, an ongoing research effort aimed at understanding chimpanzee cognition.

As part of the Ai Project, Ayumu participated in a series of short-term memory tasks on a touch-sensitive computer screen.

His performance in the tasks was superior to that of comparably trained university students, leading to a conclusion that young chimpanzees have better eidetic memory than adult humans.
