Abstract

Using data previously prepared for other research projects on machine learning at BT, some trials using genetic programming (GP) techniques for commercial problem solving were conducted. Three very distinct applications were trialled. 1. Locating the eyes in bitmap images of faces. 2.Predicting future trends in the fluctuation of share prices.3. Identifying ‘problematic’ modules in software systems from software metrics. The purpose of the trials was to evaluate both how effectively and how expensively (in terms of computing time), such relatively difficult problems might be solved using GP.
