  abstract =     "Object detection is an important field of research in
                 computer vision which genetic programming has been
                 applied to recently. This paper describes two new
                 fitness functions in genetic programming for object
                 detection. Both fitness functions are based on recall
                 and precision of genetic programs. The first is a
                 tolerance based fitness function and the second is a
                 weighted fitness function. The merits and effectiveness
                 of the two fitness function are discussed. The two
                 fitness functions are examined and compared on three
                 object detection problems of increasing difficulty. The
                 results suggest that both fitness functions perform
                 very well on the relatively easy problem, the weighted
                 fitness function outperforms the tolerance based
                 fitness function on the relatively difficult
