  abstract =     "This paper investigates the relative efficiency of
                 genetic algorithms and genetic programming in evolving
                 simple software agents. The problem domain consists of
                 an autonomous food-gathering agent placed on a square
                 grid of hundred cells with food units spread evenly
                 over the grid. Initial results show that evolving the
                 agent using GP requires less effort than with GA.
                 Nevertheless, further investigation revealed some
                 interesting aspects.",
