Abstract: creating agents that are capable of emulating the same kind of socio-cultural dynamics found in human interaction remains one of the hardest challenges of artificial intelligence. this problem becomes important when we consider embodied agents that are meant to interact with humans in a believable and empathic manner. our application context is an artificial society, i.e., the whole work will be a simulation of a social system which is not possible experimentally in a real world. In this paper we also study various reproductive schemes in an evolving population of agents. we classify reproduction schemes in temporal and spatial terms, that is , by distinguishing when and where agents reproduce.

Keywords: agent reproduction, artificial society, agents, virtual environment.
