We propose implementing a parallel EA on consumer graphics cards, which we can find in many PCs. This lets more people use our parallel algorithm to solve large-scale, real-world problems such as data mining. Parallel evolutionary algorithms run on consumer-grade graphics hardware achieve better execution times than ordinary evolutionary algorithms and(More)
Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) are effective and robust methods for solving many practical problems such as feature selection, electrical circuits synthesis, and data mining. However, they may execute for a long time for some difficult problems, because several fitness evaluations must be performed. A promising approach to overcome this limitation is to(More)
Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) integrates the techniques from traditional machine learning and logic programming to construct logic programs from training examples. Most existing systems employ greedy search strategies which may trap the systems in a local maxima. This paper describes a system, called the Genetic Logic Programming System (GLPS), that(More)
—Given the explosive growth of data collected from current business environment, data mining can potentially discover new knowledge to improve managerial decision making. This paper proposes a novel data mining approach that employs an evolutionary algorithm to discover knowledge represented in Bayesian networks. The approach is applied successfully to(More)
Genetic Programming (GP) and Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) have received increasing interest recently. Since their formalisms are so different, these two approaches cannot be integrated easily though they share many common goals and functionalities. A unification will greatly enhance their problem solving power. Moreover, they are restricted in the(More)
