  abstract =     "When search operators in genetic programming (GP)
                 insert new instructions into programs, they usually
                 draw them uniformly from the available instruction set.
                 Preferring some instructions to others would require
                 additional domain knowledge, which is typically
                 unavailable. However, it has been recently demonstrated
                 that the likelihoods of instructions occurrence in a
                 program can be reasonably well estimated from its
                 input-output behaviour using a neural network. We
                 exploit this idea to bias the choice of instructions
                 used by search operators in GP. Given a large sample of
                 programs and their input-output behaviours, a neural
                 network is trained to predict the presence of
                 individual instructions. When applied to a new program
                 synthesis task, the network is first queried on the set
                 of examples that define the task, and the obtained
                 probabilities determine the frequencies of using
                 instructions in initialization and mutation operators.
                 This priming leads to significant improvements of the
                 odds of successful synthesis on a range of
