  abstract =     "Traditional image enhancement techniques improve
                 images by applying a series of filters, each of which
                 repairs a specific type of flaw, but most modern
                 digital cameras produce images with a variety of subtle
                 interacting defects. Sequential repair is slow, and the
                 interactions limit the effectiveness. This paper
                 describes a fundamentally different approach in which a
                 single filter is created to repair the potentially
                 myriad interacting defects associated with a particular
                 camera configuration and set of exposure parameters.
                 Genetic programming (GP) is used to automatically
                 evolve a filter algorithm that will convert flawed
                 images into images minimally differing at the pixel
                 level from the corresponding provided ideal images. For
                 example, the flawed images might be shot at a high ISO
                 and the ideal ones might be the exact same static
                 scenes, aligned at the pixel level, but shot at a low
                 ISO using appropriately longer exposure times. Just as
                 easily, the flawed images might be technically well
                 corrected, while the ideal ones were manually-edited to
                 adjust and smooth skin tones, sharpen hair, enhance
                 shadow regions, et. The custom-coded parallel GP, its
                 performance, and performance of the generated filters
                 is discussed with an example.",
