  abstract =     "Genetic Programming (GP) to evolve programs for
                 tracking objects quickly in streaming video. A small
                 number of images, with located objects, are used as
                 training data and GP automatically performs
                 feature-selection on these images at the pixel level.
                 The use of feature functions is introduced, taking a
                 single offset argument, in contrast to the standard
                 feature terminal approach. The features include both
                 'directionless' intensity features and 'directional'
                 edge detection features. The fitness function rewards
                 evolved programs that can move training points, located
                 on a grid around an object, closer to the object. As
                 such, a good program will also be able to update an
                 object position from frame to frame for tracking. Two
                 video sequences are examined, with evolved programs
                 tracking the left-eye and forehead of a person
                 successfully. The method is very fast, tracking a frame
                 in six or seven milliseconds on a 2.6GHz PC.",
