  abstract =     "Edge detection is a subjective task. Traditionally, a
                 moving window approach is used, but the window size in
                 edge detection is a tradeoff between localisation
                 accuracy and noise rejection. An automatic technique
                 for searching a discriminated pixel's neighbours to
                 construct new edge detectors is appealing to satisfy
                 different tasks. In this paper, we propose a genetic
                 programming (GP) system to automatically search pixels
                 (a discriminated pixel and its neighbours) to construct
                 new low-level subjective edge detectors for detecting
                 edges in natural images, and analyse the pixels
                 selected by the GP edge detectors. Automatically
                 searching pixels avoids the problem of blurring edges
                 from a large window and noise influence from a small
                 window. Linear and second-order filters are constructed
                 from the pixels with high occurrences in these GP edge
                 detectors. The experiment results show that the
                 proposed GP system has good performance. A comparison
                 between the filters with the pixels selected by GP and
                 all pixels in a fixed window indicates that the set of
                 pixels selected by GP is compact but sufficiently rich
                 to construct good edge detectors.",
