  abstract =     "The Ant Colony Metaheuristic was originally proposed
                 for tackling optimization problems. More recent
                 research has suggested that it can be applied for
                 automatic generation of programs. By allowing the
                 artificial ants to visit functions and terminals nodes,
                 they become able to build pheromone trails that
                 represent computer programs for optimising a fitness
                 domain-specific function. In this paper a novel
                 approach is addressed using a grid architecture as a
                 more suitable discrete world to be explored by the
                 ants. The resulting system was applied to automatically
                 produce programs to solve Boolean functions.",
