  abstract =     "Using data previously prepared for other research
                 projects on machine learning at BT, some trials using
                 genetic programming (GP) techniques for commercial
                 problem solving were conducted. Three very distinct
                 applications were trialled. 1. Locating the eyes in
                 bitmap images of faces. 2.Predicting future trends in
                 the fluctuation of share prices. 3. Identifying
                 problematic modules in software systems from software
                 metrics. The purpose of the trials was to evaluate both
                 how effectively and how expensively (in terms of
                 computing time), such relatively difficult problems
                 might be solved using GP.",
