  abstract =     "Nowadays a large number of intelligent systems for
                 decision-making have yielded encouraging results.
                 However, it is commonly acknowledged that expert system
                 technology has some drawbacks. In particular, the
                 knowledge bases of expert systems do not evolve. To
                 solve this problem, a solution that integrated neural
                 networks and expert systems has recently been proposed,
                 namely the application of neural logic networks. This
                 integrated system combines the strength of rule-based
                 semantic structure and the learning capability of
                 connectionist architecture. Nevertheless, the early
                 approaches of this model carried the disadvantage of
                 producing poor results or solutions that could not be
                 interpreted straightforward. In this work, we overcome
                 the these problems and we propose a system that is
                 capable of producing arbitrary large and connected
                 neural logic networks that can easily be interpreted
                 into sets of expert rules. To accomplish this task we
                 adopt a genetic programming approach, guided through
                 grammars and we encode indirectly the architecture into
                 genetic programming individuals. We test and make
                 conclusions on the effectiveness of the proposed system
                 into two real-world decision making domains.",
