  abstract =     "This paper describes a probability based genetic
                 programming (GP) approach to multiclass object
                 classification problems. Instead of using predefined
                 multiple thresholds to form different regions in the
                 program output space for different classes, this
                 approach uses probabilities of different classes,
                 derived from Gaussian distributions, to construct the
                 fitness function for classification. Two fitness
                 measures, overlap area and weighted distribution
                 distance, have been developed. The approach is examined
                 on three multiclass object classification problems of
                 increasing difficulty and compared with a basic GP
                 approach. The results suggest that the new approach is
                 more effective and more efficient than the basic GP
                 approach. While the area measure was a bit more
                 effective than the distance measure in most cases, the
                 distance measure was more efficient to learn good
                 program classifiers.",
