  abstract =     "This paper describes an efficient acceleration
                 technique designed to speedup the evaluation of
                 candidate solutions in Cartesian Genetic Programming
                 (CGP). The method is based on translation of the CGP
                 phenotype to a binary machine code that is consequently
                 executed. The key feature of the presented approach is
                 that the introduction of the translation mechanism into
                 common fitness evaluation procedure requires only
                 marginal knowledge of target CPU instruction set. The
                 proposed acceleration technique is evaluated using a
                 symbolic regression problem in floating point domain.
                 It is shown that for a cost of small changes in a
                 common CGP implementation, a significant speedup can be
                 obtained even on a common desktop CPU. The accelerated
                 version of CGP implementation accompanied with
                 performance analysis is available for free download
                 from http://www.fit.vutbr.cz/~vasicek/cgp",
