  abstract =     "We propose a learning algorithm that reuses knowledge
                 acquired in past learning sessions to improve its
                 performance on a new learning task. The method concerns
                 visual learning and uses genetic programming to
                 represent hypotheses, each of them being a procedure
                 that processes visual primitives derived from the
                 training images. The process of recognition is
                 generative, i.e., a procedure is supposed to restore
                 the shape of the processed object by drawing its
                 reproduction on a separate canvas. This basic method is
                 extended with a knowledge reuse mechanism that allows
                 learners to import genetic material from hypotheses
                 that evolved for the other decision classes (object
                 classes). We compare both methods on a task of
                 handwritten character recognition, and conclude that
                 knowledge reuse leads to significant improvement of
                 classification accuracy and reduces the risk of
