  abstract =     "Figure-ground segmentation is an important image
                 processing task that genetic programming (GP) has been
                 successfully introduced to solve. However, existing GP
                 methods use a homogeneous mixture of preprocessing and
                 post processing operators for segmentation. This can
                 result in inappropriate operators being connected,
                 leading to poor performance and unnecessary operations
                 in solutions. To address this issue, two new methods
                 are designed to enable GP to conduct image
                 preprocessing, binarisation and postprocessing
                 separately. Specifically, the two methods introduce a
                 strongly-typed representation (StronglyGP) and a
                 two-stage evolution (TwostageGP) in GP respectively
                 Results show that StronglyGP can evolve effective
                 segmentors for the given complex segmentation tasks.
                 However, TwostageGP currently performs poorly, which is
                 likely caused by over fitting, which will be addressed
                 in future work.",
