  abstract =     "Traditional machine vision assumes that the vision
                 system recovers a complete, labeled description of the
                 world [Marr]. Recently, several researchers have
                 criticized this model and proposed an alternative model
                 which considers perception as a distributed collection
                 of task-specific, task-driven visual routines
                 [Aloimonos, Ullman]. Some of these researchers have
                 argued that in natural living systems these visual
                 routines are the product of natural selection
                 [ramachandran]. So far, researchers have hand-coded
                 task-specific visual routines for actual
                 implementations (e.g. [Chapman]). In this paper we
                 propose an alternative approach in which visual
                 routines for simple tasks are evolved using an
                 artificial evolution approach. We present results from
                 a series of runs on actual camera images, in which
                 simple routines were evolved using Genetic Programming
                 techniques [Koza]. The results obtained are promising:
                 the evolved routines are able to correctly classify up
                 to 93% of the images, which is better than the best
                 algorithm we were able to write by hand.",
