This article is a combined summary of two papers written by the authors. Binary data classification problems (with exactly two disjoint classes) form an important application area of machine learning techniques, in particular genetic programming (GP). In this study we compare a number of different variants of GP applied to such problems whereby we investigate the effect of two significant changes in a fixed GP setup in combination with two different evolutionary models
