  abstract =     "Most previous approaches using genetic programming to
                 solve object detection tasks have evolved classifiers
                 which are basically arithmetic expressions using
                 pre-extracted local pixel statistics as terminals. The
                 pixel statistics chosen are often highly general,
                 meaning that the classifier cannot exploit useful
                 aspects of the domain, or are too domain specific and
                 overfit. This work presents a system whereby a feature
                 construction stage is simultaneously coevolved along
                 side the GP object detectors. Effectively, the system
                 learns both stages of the visual process
                 simultaneously. This work shows initial results of
                 using this technique on both artificial and natual
                 images and shows how it can quickly adapt to form
                 general solutions to difficult scale and rotation
                 invariant problems.",
