  abstract =     "Decision tree induction is one of the most employed
                 methods to extract knowledge from data, since the
                 representation of knowledge is very intuitive and
                 easily understandable by humans. The most successful
                 strategy for inducing decision trees, the greedy
                 top-down approach, has been continuously improved by
                 researchers over the years. This work, following recent
                 breakthroughs in the automatic design of machine
                 learning algorithms, proposes two different approaches
                 for automatically generating generic decision tree
                 induction algorithms. Both approaches are based on the
                 evolutionary algorithms paradigm, which improves
                 solutions based on metaphors of biological processes.
                 We also propose guidelines to design interesting
                 fitness functions for these evolutionary algorithms,
                 which take into account the requirements and needs of
                 the end-user.",
