  abstract =     "As is typical in evolutionary algorithms, fitness
                 evaluation in GP takes the majority of the
                 computational effort. In this paper we demonstrate the
                 use of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to accelerate
                 the evaluation of individuals. We show that for both
                 binary and floating point based data types, it is
                 possible to get speed increases of several hundred
                 times over a typical CPU implementation. This allows
                 for evaluation of many thousands of fitness cases, and
                 hence should enable more ambitious solutions to be
                 evolved using GP.",
