  abstract =     "The use of Constructive Induction (CI) methods for the
                 generation of high-quality attributes is a very
                 important issue in Machine Learning. In this paper, we
                 present a CI method based in Genetic Programming (GP).
                 This method is able to evolve projections that
                 transform the dataset, constructing a new coordinates
                 space in which the data can be more easily predicted.
                 This coordinates space can be smaller than the original
                 one, achieving two main goals at the same time: on one
                 hand, improving classification tasks; on the other
                 hand, reducing dimensionality of the problem. Also, our
                 method can handle classification and regression
                 problems. We have tested our approach in two financial
                 prediction problems because their high dimensionality
                 is very appropriate for our method. In the first one,
                 GP is used to tackle prediction of bankruptcy of
                 companies (classification problem). In the second one,
                 an IPO Underpricing prediction domain (a classical
                 regression problem) is confronted. Our method obtained
                 in both cases competitive results and, in addition, it
                 drastically reduced dimensionality of the problem.",
