  abstract =     "The use of machine learning techniques to
                 automatically analyse data for information is becoming
                 increasingly widespread. In this paper we examine the
                 use of Genetic Programming and a Genetic Algorithm to
                 pre-process data before it is classified by an external
                 classifier. Genetic Programming is combined with a
                 Genetic Algorithm to construct and select new features
                 from those available in the data, a potentially
                 significant process for data mining since it gives
                 consideration to hidden relationships between features.
                 We then examine techniques to improve the human
                 readability of these new features and extract more
                 information about the domain.",
