  abstract =     "The detection and classification of buried targets
                 such as unexploded ordnance (UXO) using ground
                 penetrating radar (GPR) technology involves complex
                 qualitative features and 2-D scattering images. These
                 processes are often performed by human operators and
                 are thus subject to error and bias. Artificial
                 intelligence (AI) technologies, such as neural networks
                 (NN) and fuzzy systems, have been applied to develop
                 autonomous classification algorithms and have shown
                 promising results. Genetic programming (GP), a
                 relatively new AI method, has also been examined for
                 these classification purposes. In this letter, the
                 results of a comparison between the classification
                 performances of NN versus the GP techniques for GPR UXO
                 data are presented. Simulated 2-D scattering patterns
                 from one UXO target and four non-UXO objects are used
                 in this comparison. Different levels of noise and cases
                 of untrained data are also examined. Obtained results
                 show that GP provides better performance than NN
                 methods with increasing problem difficulty. Genetic
                 programming also showed robustness to untrained data as
                 well as an inherent capability of providing global
                 optimal searching, which could minimise efforts on
                 training processes.",
