  abstract =     "We investigate the effect of ability to learn simple
                 actions on the performance characteristics of evolution
                 of social behaviour of agents situated in inherently
                 cooperative environment. Using continuous
                 predators-prey pursuit problem we verified that
                 relatively complex social behavior emerges from simple,
                 implicit, locally defined, and thus robust and scalable
                 interactions between the predator agents. Considering a
                 distinct aspect of the phenomenon of emergence, we
                 hypothesise that the ability of agents to learn how to
                 perform simple, atomic acts of implicit interaction
                 might facilitate the evolution of more complex
                 behaviour. The empirical results indicate that
                 incorporation of the proposed approach of learning in
                 genetic programming (employed as an algorithmic
                 paradigm to evolve the social behaviour of the agents)
                 is associated with about two-fold decrease of
                 computational effort of the evolution.",
