The paper presents a hybrid classification method of BNF grammar-based genetic programming and evolutionary decision tree induction, customized for the rule induction according to a layered hierarchical scheme – the AREX approach. It incorporates two original, independent evolutionary algorithms which together solve the problem of automatic classification rules induction. The method is applied to five real world databases (from medicine and software engineering) and the results are compared to those obtained with C5/See5 to evaluate the method’s efficiency. Ideally, this paper will inspire future research in this same area and along similar lines.
