  abstract =     "a new application of a validation set when using a
                 three data set methodology with Genetic Programming
                 (GP). Our system uses Validation Pressure combined with
                 Validation Elitism to influence fitness evaluation and
                 population structure with the aim of improving the
                 system's ability to evolve individuals with an enhanced
                 capacity for generalisation. This strategy facilitates
                 the use of a validation set to reduce over-fitting
                 while mitigating the loss of training data associated
                 with traditional methods employing a validation set.
                 The method is tested on five benchmark binary
                 classification data sets and results obtained suggest
                 that the strategy can deliver improved generalisation
                 on unseen test data.",
