  abstract =     "Packet loss is bursty in nature and it affects the
                 quality of VoIP adversely. In this article a novel
                 approach based on genetic programming (GP) has been
                 presented that maps the effect of bursty packet loss on
                 listeners' perception of speech quality. The ITU-T
                 P.862 (PESQ) algorithm is used as a reference model in
                 this research. A simplistic non-linear model for
                 effective VoIP quality estimation has been proposed.
                 The performance of the model shows a high correlation
                 with the PESQ algorithm. In the light of current and
                 related research it has also been shown that PESQ does
                 not model the effect of bursty packet loss on speech
                 quality. However, as a good approximation to PESQ the
                 proposed model is suitable for reliable, real-time and
                 continuous evaluation of VoIP calls. It is also claimed
                 that it is conveniently deployable on a wide variety of
                 hardware platforms",
