  abstract =     "In this paper a novel approach to performing
                 classification is presented. Hypersurface Discriminant
                 functions are evolved using Genetic Programming. These
                 discriminant functions reside in the states of a Finite
                 State Automata, which has the ability to reason 1 and
                 logically combine the hypersurfaces to generate a
                 complex decision space. An object may be classified by
                 one or many of the discriminant functions, this is
                 decided by the automata. During the evolution of this
                 symbiotic architecture, feature selection for each of
                 the discriminant functions is achieved implicitly, a
                 task which is normally performed before a
                 classification algorithm is trained. Since each
                 dis-criminant function has different features, and
                 objects may be classified with one or more discriminant
                 functions, no two objects from the same class need be
                 classified using the same features. Instead, the most
                 appropriate features for a given object are used.",
