  abstract =     "The purpose of this research is to develop effective
                 machine learning or data mining techniques based on
                 flexible neural tree FNT. Based on the pre-defined
                 instruction/operator sets, a flexible neural tree model
                 can be created and evolved. This framework allows input
                 variables selection, over-layer connections and
                 different activation functions for the various nodes
                 involved. The FNT structure is developed using genetic
                 programming (GP) and the parameters are optimised by a
                 memetic algorithm (MA). The proposed approach was
                 applied for two real-world problems involving designing
                 intrusion detection system (IDS) and for breast cancer
                 classification. The IDS data has 41 inputs/features and
                 the breast cancer classification problem has 30
                 inputs/features. Empirical results indicate that the
                 proposed method is efficient for both input feature
                 selection and improved classification rate.",
