  abstract =     "We introduce Evolutionary Feature Synthesis (EFS), a
                 regression method that generates readable, nonlinear
                 models of small to medium size datasets in seconds. EFS
                 is, to the best of our knowledge, the fastest
                 regression tool based on evolutionary computation
                 reported to date. The feature search involved in the
                 proposed method is composed of two main steps: feature
                 composition and feature subset selection. EFS adopts a
                 bottom-up feature composition strategy that eliminates
                 the need for a symbolic representation of the features
                 and exploits the variable selection process involved in
                 pathwise regularized linear regression to perform the
                 feature subset selection step. The result is a
                 regression method that is competitive against neural
                 networks, and outperforms both linear methods and
                 Multiple Regression Genetic Programming, up to now the
                 best regression tool based on evolutionary
