Abstract: A genetic programming based method is introduced for data classification. The fundamental element of the method is the well-known technique of Grammatical Evolution. The method constructs classification programs in a C - like programming language in order to classify the input data, producing simple if-else rules. The paper introduces the method as well as the conducted experiments on a series of datasets against other well known classification methods.

Keywords: genetic algorithm; data classification; grammatical evolution; stochastic methods.
