  abstract =     "The success of automatic classification is intricately
                 linked with an effective feature selection. Previous
                 studies on the use of genetic programming (GP) to solve
                 classification problems have highlighted its benefits,
                 principally its inherent feature selection (a process
                 that is often performed independent of a learning
                 method). In this paper, the problem of classification
                 is recast as a feature generation problem, where GP is
                 used to evolve programs that allow non-linear
                 combination of features to create superFeatures, from
                 which classification tasks can be achieved fairly
                 easily. In order to generate superFeatures robustly,
                 the binary string fitness characterisation along with
                 the comparative partner selection strategy is
                 introduced with the aim of promoting optimal
                 convergence. The techniques introduced are applied to
                 two illustrative problems first and then to the
                 real-world problem of audio source classification, with
                 competitive results.",
