oa Interim : Interdisciplinary Journal - The implementation of communication developed with genetic programming techniques within the RoboCup domain (June 2013)
RoboCup teams developed through Genetic Programming (GP) still fall short of their hand coded counterparts. This study evaluates the addition of communication to determine if developed teams will demonstrate improved performance and whether current GP techniques can evolve communication. Three cases were selected to be presented. The first case's fitness function rewarded communication, whereas case two relied on a simpler fitness function; however both resulted in a lack of communication evolving. Case three forced players to respond to messages, which resulted in more structured team play evolving. This indicates that current GP techniques are insufficient and that alternative approaches needs to be pursued in future research.
