  abstract =     "The figure of merit (FOM) is popular for testing an
                 edge detector's performance, but there are very few
                 reports using FOM as an evaluation method in Genetic
                 Programming (GP). In this study, FOM is investigated as
                 a fitness function in GP for edge detection. Since FOM
                 has some drawbacks from type II errors, new fitness
                 functions are developed based on FOM in order to
                 address these weaknesses. Experimental results show
                 that FOM can be used to evolve GP edge detectors that
                 perform better than the Sobel detector, and the new
                 fitness functions clearly improve the ability of GP
                 edge detectors to find edge points and give a single
                 response on edges, compared with the fitness function
                 using FOM.",
