  abstract =     "We investigate the effect of the ability to learn
                 simple actions on the performance characteristics of
                 the evolution of social behaviour in agents situated in
                 an inherently cooperative environment. Using a
                 continuous predator-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 behavior. The empirical results indicate that
                 incorporation of the proposed approach to learning in
                 genetic programming (employed as an algorithmic
                 paradigm to evolve the social behavior of the agents)
                 is associated with about a two-fold decrease in the
                 computational effort of evolution.",
