We show an artificial world where animals (humans) and animats (software agents) interact in a coevolutionary arms race. The two species each use adaptation schemes of their own. Learning through interaction with humans has been out of reach for evolutionary learning techniques because too many iterations are necessary. Our work demonstrates that the Internet is a new environment where this may be possible through an appropriate setup that creates mutualism, a relationship where human and animat species benefit from their interactions with each other.
