  abstract =     "Real-world scene recognition has been one of the most
                 challenging research topics in computer vision, due to
                 the tremendous intra-class variability and the wide
                 range of scene categories. In this paper, we
                 successfully apply an evolutionary methodology to
                 automatically synthesise domain-adaptive holistic
                 descriptors for the task of scene recognition, instead
                 of using hand-tuned descriptors. We address this as an
                 optimisation problem by using multi-objective genetic
                 programming (MOGP). Specifically, a set of primitive
                 operators and filters are first randomly assembled in
                 the MOGP framework as tree-based combinations, which
                 are then evaluated by two objective fitness criteria
                 i.e., the classification error and the tree complexity.
                 Finally, the best-so-far solution selected by MOGP is
                 regarded as the (near-)optimal feature descriptor for
                 scene recognition. We have evaluated our approach on
                 three realistic scene datasets: MIT urban and nature,
                 SUN and UIUC Sport. Experimental results consistently
                 show that our MOGP-generated descriptors achieve
                 significantly higher recognition accuracies compared
                 with state-of-the-art hand-crafted and machine-learnt
