  abstract =     "In this paper we present an approach to the
                 interactive development of programs for image
                 enhancement with Genetic Programming (GP) based on
                 pseudo-colour transformations. In our approach the user
                 drives GP by deciding which individual should be the
                 winner in tournament selection. The presence of the
                 user does not only allow running GP without a fitness
                 function but it also transforms GP into a very
                 efficient search procedure capable of producing
                 effective solutions to real-life problems in only
                 hundreds of evaluations. In the paper we also propose a
                 strategy to further reduce user interaction: we record
                 the choices made by the user in interactive runs and we
                 later use them to build a model which can replace
                 him/her in longer runs. Experimental results with
                 interactive GP and with our user-modelling strategy are
                 also reported.",
