  abstract =     "Genetic Programming (GP) is one of the evolutionary
                 computation techniques that is used for the
                 classification process. GP has shown that good accuracy
                 values especially for binary classifications can be
                 achieved, however, for multiclass classification
                 unfortunately GP does not obtain high accuracy results.
                 In this paper, we propose two approaches in order to
                 improve the GP classification task. One approach (GP-K)
                 uses the K-means clustering technique in order to
                 transform the produced value of GP into class labels.
                 The second approach (GP-D) uses a discretization
                 technique to perform the transformation. A comparison
                 of the original GP, GP-K and GP-D was conducted using
                 binary and multiclass datasets. In addition, a
                 comparison with other state-of-the-art classifiers was
                 performed. The results reveal that GP-K shows good
                 improvement in terms of accuracy compared to the
                 original GP, however, it has a slightly longer
                 execution time. GP-D also achieves higher accuracy
                 values than the original GP as well as GP-K, and the
                 comparison with the state-of-the-art classifiers reveal
                 competitive accuracy values.",
