  abstract =     "Credit card classification based on machine learning
                 has attracted considerable interest from the research
                 community. One of the most important tasks in this area
                 is the ability of classifiers to handle the imbalance
                 in credit card data. In this scenario, classifiers tend
                 to yield poor accuracy on the minority class despite
                 realizing high overall accuracy. This is due to the
                 influence of the majority class on traditional training
                 criteria. In this paper, we aim to apply genetic
                 programming to address this issue by adapting existing
                 fitness functions. We examine two fitness functions
                 from previous studies and develop two new fitness
                 functions to evolve GP classifiers with superior
                 accuracy on the minority class and overall. Two UCI
                 credit card datasets are used to evaluate the
                 effectiveness of the proposed fitness functions. The
                 results demonstrate that the proposed fitness functions
                 augment GP classifiers, encouraging fitter solutions on
                 both the minority and the majority classes.",
