Does it Matter Where you Start? A Comparison of Two Initialisation Strategies for Grammar Guided Genetic Programming

, , and . Proceedings of The Second Asian-Pacific Workshop on Genetic Programming, Cairns, Australia, (6-7 December 2004)


we experimentally show that the initialisation process is very important for Grammar Guided Genetic Programming (GGGP). In particular, using different initialization strategies (algorithms) can lead to very different overall results with GGGP. This is in strong contrast with results previously reported for standard Genetic Programming 9. We also show that on the problems tried, the initialisation algorithm from Tree Adjoining Grammar Guided Genetic Programming (TAG3P) helps GGGP improve its performance compared with the use of the standard initialisation algorithm proposed in 10, 11
