  abstract =     "There are several data based methods in the field of
                 artificial intelligence which are nowadays frequently
                 used for analyzing classification problems in the
                 context of medical applications. As we show in this
                 paper, the application of enhanced evolutionary
                 computation techniques to classification problems has
                 the potential to evolve classifiers of even higher
                 quality than those trained by standard machine learning
                 methods. On the basis of five medical benchmark
                 classification problems taken from the UCI repository
                 as well as the Melanoma data set (prepared by members
                 of the Department of Dermatology of the Medical
                 University Vienna) we document that the enhanced
                 genetic programming approach presented here is able to
                 produce comparable or even better results than linear
                 modeling methods, artificial neural networks, kNN
                 classification, support vector machines and also
                 various genetic programming approaches.",
