  abstract =     "The Support Vector Machine has gained significant
                 popularity over recent years as a kernel-based
                 supervised learning technique. However, choosing the
                 appropriate kernel function and its associated
                 parameters is not a trivial task. The kernel is often
                 chosen from several widely-used and general-purpose
                 functions, and the parameters are then empirically
                 tuned for the best results on a specific data set. This
                 paper explores the use of Particle Swarm Optimisation
                 and Genetic Programming as evolutionary approaches to
                 evolve effective kernel functions for a given dataset.
                 Rather than using expert knowledge, we evolve kernel
                 functions without human-guided knowledge or intuition.
                 Our results show consistently better SVM performance
                 with evolved kernels over a variety of traditional
                 kernels on several datasets.",
