The Emergence of Social Inequality among Robots

In 1949 the British cyberneticist, Grey Walter, and his technician, “Bunny” Warren, built two electronic tortoises, Elmer and Elsie. The tortoises were capable of avoiding obstacles, moving toward a light source (phototaxis), and parking in a hutch to recharge their batteries. They were built with analog electronics that connected simple sensors with motors. Grey Walter had designed these robots to investigate how a “living brain” manages to exhibit flexible control, learning, and adaptivity vis-à-vis the environment.
