  abstract =     "Designing suitable behavioral rules of agents so as to
                 generate realistic behaviors is a fundamental and
                 challenging task in many forms of computational
                 modeling. This paper proposes a novel methodology to
                 automatically generate a descriptive model, in the form
                 of behavioral rules, from video data of human crowds.
                 In the proposed methodology, the problem of modeling
                 crowd behaviors is formulated as a symbolic regression
                 problem and the self-learning gene expression
                 programming is used to solve the problem and
                 automatically obtain behavioral rules that match data.
                 To evaluate its effectiveness, we apply the proposed
                 method to generate a model from a video dataset in
                 Switzerland and then test the generality of the model
                 by validating against video data from the United
                 States. The results demonstrate that, based on the
                 observed movement of people in one scenario, the
                 proposed methodology can automatically construct a
                 general model capable of describing the crowd dynamics
                 of another scenario in a different context (e.g.,
                 Switzerland vs. U.S.) as long as that the crowd
                 behavior patterns are similar.",
