  abstract =     "This paper presents an online feature selection
                 algorithm using genetic programming (GP). The proposed
                 GP methodology simultaneously selects a good subset of
                 features and constructs a classifier using the selected
                 features. For a c-class problem, it provides a
                 classifier having c trees. In this context, we
                 introduce two new crossover operations to suit the
                 feature selection process. As a byproduct, our
                 algorithm produces a feature ranking scheme. We tested
                 our method on several data sets having dimensions
                 varying from 4 to 7129. We compared the performance of
                 our method with results available in the literature and
                 found that the proposed method produces consistently
                 good results. To demonstrate the robustness of the
                 scheme, we studied its effectiveness on data sets with
                 known (synthetically added) redundant/bad features.",
