  abstract =     "Texture classification aims at categorising instances
                 that have a similar repetitive pattern. In computer
                 vision, texture classification represents a fundamental
                 element in a wide variety of applications, which can be
                 performed by detecting texture primitives of the
                 different classes. Using image descriptors to detect
                 prominent features has been widely adopted in computer
                 vision. Building an effective descriptor becomes more
                 challenging when there are only a few labelled
                 instances. This paper proposes a new Genetic
                 Programming (GP) representation for evolving an image
                 descriptor that operates directly on the raw pixel
                 values and uses only two instances per class. The new
                 method synthesises a set of mathematical formulas that
                 are used to generate the feature vector, and the
                 classification is then performed using a simple
                 instance-based classifier. Determining the length of
                 the feature vector is automatically handled by the new
                 method. Two GP and nine well-known non-GP methods are
                 compared on two texture image data sets for texture
                 classification in order to test the effectiveness of
                 the proposed method. The proposed method is also
                 compared to three hand-crafted descriptors namely
                 domain-independent features, local binary patterns, and
                 Haralick texture features. The results show that the
                 proposed method has superior performance over the
                 competitive methods.",
