Genetic programming is a systematic method for getting computers to solve problems automatically starting from a high-level statement of what needs to be done. GP has generated a plethora of human-competitive results and applications, including novel scientific discoveries and patentable inventions. This unique overview of this exciting technique is written by three of the most active scientists in GP.
