  abstract =     "The signal-to-symbol problem is the task of converting
                 raw sensor data into a set of symbols that Artificial
                 Intelligence systems can reason about. We have
                 developed a method for directly learning and combining
                 algorithms that map signals into symbols. This new
                 method is based on Genetic Programming (GP). Previous
                 papers have focused on PADO, our learning architecture.
                 We showed how PADO applies to the general
                 signal-to-symbol task and in particular the positive
                 results it brings to natural image object recognition.
                 Originally, PADO's programs were written in a Lisp-like
                 language formulated in~\cite{teller2}. PADO's programs
                 are now written in a very different language. Using
                 this new language, PADO's performance has increased
                 substantially on several domains including two vision
                 domains this paper will mention. This paper will
                 discuss these two language representations, the results
                 they produced, and some analysis of the performance
                 improvement. The higher level goals of this paper are
                 to give some justification for PADO's specific language
                 progression, some explanation for the improved
                 performance this progression generated, and to offer
                 PADO's new language representation as an advancement in
