  abstract =     "A common approach in Geometric Semantic Genetic
                 Programming (GSGP) is to seed initial populations using
                 conventional, semantic-unaware methods like Ramped
                 Half-and-Half. We formally demonstrate that this may
                 limit GSGP's ability to find a program with the sought
                 semantics. To overcome this issue, we determine the
                 desired properties of geometric-aware semantic
                 initialization and implement them in Semantic Geometric
                 Initialization (\textsc{Sgi}) algorithm, which we
                 instantiate for symbolic regression and Boolean
                 function synthesis problems. Properties of \textsc{Sgi}
                 and its impact on GSGP search are verified
                 experimentally on nine symbolic regression and nine
                 Boolean function synthesis benchmarks. When assessed
                 experimentally, \textsc{Sgi} leads to superior
                 performance of GSGP search: better best-of-run fitness
                 and higher probability of finding the optimal
