  abstract =     "The distributed evolutionary computation platform
                 EC-Star is extended in this paper to probabilistic
                 classifiers. This extension, called PRETSL, allows the
                 distributed age-layered evolution of probabilistic rule
                 sets, which in turn makes more fine-grained decisions
                 possible. The method is tested on 20 UCI data problems,
                 as well as a larger dataset of arterial blood pressure
                 waveforms. The Results show consistent improvement in
                 all cases compared to binary classification rule-sets.
                 Probabilistic rule evolution is thus a promising
                 approach to difficult classification tasks and
                 particularly well suited for time-series
