  abstract =     "In this paper, we present a generic, optimising
                 feature extraction method using multiobjective genetic
                 programming. We re-examine the feature extraction
                 problem and show that effective feature extraction can
                 significantly enhance the performance of pattern
                 recognition systems with simple classifiers. A
                 framework is presented to evolve optimised feature
                 extractors that transform an input pattern space into a
                 decision space in which maximal class separability is
                 obtained. We have applied this method to real world
                 datasets from the UCI Machine Learning and StatLog
                 databases to verify our approach and compare our
                 proposed method with other reported results. We
                 conclude that our algorithm is able to produce
                 classifiers of superior (or equivalent) performance to
                 the conventional classifiers examined, suggesting
                 removal of the need to exhaustively evaluate a large
                 family of conventional classifiers on any new
                 problem.",
