  abstract =     "Genetic programming (GP) for data classification using
                 decision trees has been successful in creating models
                 which obtain high classification accuracies. When
                 categorical data is used GP is able to directly use
                 decision trees to create models, however when the data
                 contains continuous attributes discretization is
                 required as a pre-processing step prior to learning.
                 There has been no attempt to incorporate the
                 discretization mechanism into the GP algorithm and this
                 serves as the rationale for this paper. This paper
                 proposes an adaptive discretization method for
                 inclusion into the GP algorithm by randomly creating
                 intervals during the execution of the algorithm through
                 the use of a new genetic operator. This proposed
                 approach was tested on five data sets and serves as an
                 initial attempt at dynamically altering the intervals
                 of GP decision trees while simultaneously searching for
                 an optimal solution during the learning phase. The
                 proposed method performs well when compared to other
                 non-GP adaptive methods.",
