  abstract =     "We propose a method of knowledge reuse for an ensemble
                 of genetic programming-based learners solving a visual
                 learning task. First, we introduce a visual learning
                 method that uses genetic programming individuals to
                 represent hypotheses. Individuals-hypotheses process
                 image representation composed of visual primitives
                 derived from the training images that contain objects
                 to be recognised. The process of recognition is
                 generative, i.e., an individual is supposed to restore
                 the shape of the processed object by drawing its
                 reproduction on a separate canvas. This canonical
                 method is extended with a knowledge reuse mechanism
                 that allows a learner to import genetic material from
                 hypotheses that evolved for the other decision classes
                 (object classes). We compare the performance of the
                 extended approach to the basic method on a real-world
                 tasks of handwritten character recognition, and
                 conclude that knowledge reuse leads to significant
                 convergence speedup and, more importantly,
                 significantly reduces the risk of overfitting.",
