04/29/2020 ∙ by Larry Bull, et al. ∙ 0

The potentially beneficial interaction between learning and evolution, the Baldwin effect, has long been established. This paper considers their interaction within a coevolutionary scenario, ie, where the adaptations of one species typically affects the fitness of others. Using the NKCS model, which allows the systematic exploration of the effects of fitness landscape size, ruggedness, and degree of coupling, it is shown how the amount of learning and the relative rate of evolution can alter behaviour.
