  abstract =     "Nowadays, object recognition is widely studied under
                 the paradigm of matching local features. This work
                 describes a genetic programming methodology that
                 synthesizes mathematical expressions that are used to
                 improve a well known local descriptor algorithm. It
                 follows the idea that object recognition in the
                 cerebral cortex of primates makes use of features of
                 intermediate complexity that are largely invariant to
                 change in scale, location, and illumination. These
                 local features have been previously designed by human
                 experts using traditional representations that have a
                 clear, preferably mathematically, well-founded
                 definition. However, it is not clear that these same
                 representations are implemented by the natural system
                 with the same structure. Hence, the possibility to
                 design novel operators through genetic programming
                 represents an open research avenue where the
                 combinatorial search of evolutionary algorithms can
                 largely exceed the ability of human experts. This paper
                 provides evidence that genetic programming is able to
                 design new features that enhance the overall
                 performance of the best available local descriptor.
                 Experimental results confirm the validity of the
                 proposed approach using a widely accept testbed and an
                 object recognition application.",
