  abstract =     "We present an alternative to standard genetic
                 programming (GP) that applies layered learning
                 techniques to decompose a problem. GP is applied to
                 subproblems sequentially, where the population in the
                 last generation of a subproblem is used as the initial
                 population of the next subproblem. This method is
                 applied to evolve agents to play keep-away soccer, a
                 subproblem of robotic soccer that requires cooperation
                 among multiple agents in a dynamic environment. The
                 layered learning paradigm allows GP to evolve better
                 solutions faster than standard GP. Results show that
                 the layered learning GP outperforms standard GP by
                 evolving a lower tness faster and an overall better
                 tness. Results indicate a wide area of future research
                 with layered learning in GP.",
