  abstract =     "We present an adaptation of the standard genetic
                 program (GP) to hierarchically decomposable,
                 multi-agent learning problems. To break down a problem
                 that requires cooperation of multiple agents, we use
                 the team objective function to derive a simpler,
                 intermediate objective function for pairs of
                 cooperating agents. We apply GP to optimize first for
                 the intermediate, then for the team objective function,
                 using the final population from the earlier GP as the
                 initial seed population for the next. This layered
                 learning approach facilitates the discovery of
                 primitive behaviors that can be reused and adapted
                 towards complex objectives based on a shared team goal.
                 We use this method to evolve agents to play a
                 subproblem of robotic soccer (keep-away soccer).
                 Finally, we show how layered learning GP evolves better
                 agents than standard GP, including GP with
                 automatically defined functions, and how the problem
                 decomposition results in a significant learning-speed
                 increase.",
