Abstract: In the 1950s and 60s, popular culture was entranced by robots. There was Robby in “Forbidden Planet,” Gort in “The day the Earth stood still” and many others. This fascination has continued to the present day, only the names have changed, now we have Commander Data of “Startrek” and the NS-5 of “I Robot.” Yet despite the interest and the obvious advantages of having intelligent machines to do dirty, boring or dangerous jobs, we are little nearer to creating a similar technology in the real world. This article outlines a new route towards such intelligence in machines - Incremental Evolution.
