  abstract =     "the development of an evolutionary algorithm called
                 Multipopulation Cooperative Coevolutionary Programming
                 (MCCP) that extends Genetic Programming (GP) to search
                 for a set of maximally different solutions for program
                 induction problems. The GP search is structured to
                 generate a set of alternatives that are similar in
                 design performance, but are dissimilar from each other
                 in the solution (or design parameter) space. This is
                 expected to yield potentially more creative designs,
                 thus enhancing design innovation. Application of MCCP
                 is demonstrated through an illustrative example
                 involving GP-based classification of genetic data to
                 diagnose malignancy in cancer. Four different
                 classifiers, based on highly dissimilar combinations of
                 genes, but with similar prediction performances were
                 generated. As these classifiers use a diverse set of
                 genes, they are collectively more effective in
                 screening cancer samples that may not all properly
                 express every gene.",
