Abstract: Evolutionary Computation has been successfully used to synthesise controllers for embodied agents and multiagent systems in general. Notwithstanding this, continuous on-line adaptation by the means of evolutionary algorithms is still under-explored. In this talk, I present an online evolutionary programming approach that searches in the agent design space for the appropriate behavioural policies to cope with the underlying environment. I will discuss the current problems of continuous agent coadaptation. The talk will be then directed towards brainstorming and open discussion of possible solutions and research directions for this work.
