  abstract =     "CPUs are often seen as sequential, however they have a
                 high degree of internal parallelism, typically
                 operating on 32 or 64 bits simultaneously. This paper
                 explores the idea of exploiting this internal
                 parallelism to extend the scope of genetic programming
                 (GP) and improve its efficiency. We call the resulting
                 form of GP sub-machine-code GP. The differences between
                 sub-machine-code GP and the usual form of GP are purely
                 semantic and largely language independent, i.e. any GP
                 system can potentially be used to do sub-machine code
                 GP. In this chapter this form of GP and some of its
                 applications are presented. The speed up obtained with
                 this technique on Boolean classification problems is
                 nearly 2 orders of magnitude.",
