  abstract =     "In electrical engineering, the deviation from average
                 values of a signal is viewed as noise to the useful
                 measurement. In human societies, however, the diversity
                 of the exhibited characteristics are a sign of
                 individuality and personal worth. We investigate the
                 effect of uncertainty variables in the environment on
                 multi-agent societies (MAS) and the consequences of the
                 deviation, from the average features of the modelled
                 agents. We show the performance of heterogeneous MAS of
                 agents in comparison to morphologically identical
                 homogeneous systems, preserving the same average
                 physical and sensory abilities for the system as a
                 whole, in a dynamic environment. We are employing a
                 form of the predator-prey pursuit problem in attempt to
                 measure the different performance of homogeneous MAS
                 with average parameters and its heterogeneous
                 counterpart. The effects of uncertainty in our work is
                 investigated from the viewpoint of (i) employing a
                 limited number of initial situations to evolve the team
                 of predator agents, (ii) generality to unforeseen
                 initial situations, and (iii) robustness to perception
                 noise. Key statistics are the efficiency of evolution
                 of the successful behaviour of predator agents,
                 effectiveness of their behaviour and its degradation
                 because of newly introduced situation or noise.
                 Preliminary results indicate that a heterogeneous
                 system can be at least as good as its homogeneous
                 average equivalent, in solution quality at the expense
                 of the runtime of evolution.",
