We study an evolution model of adaptive self-learning agents. The control system of agents is based on a neural network adaptive critic design. Each agent is a broker that predicts stock price changes and uses its predictions for action selection. The agent tries to get rich by buying and selling stocks. We demonstrate that the Baldwin effect takes place in our model, viz., originally acquired adaptive policy of an agent-broker becomes inherited in the course of the evolution. In addition, we… CONTINUE READING
