Genetic Programming (GP) is an automated method for creating a working computer program from a high-level problem statement of a problem. Genetic programming starts from a high-level statement of "What needs to be done" and automatically creates a computer program to solve the problem. In artificial intelligence, Genetic Programming (GP) is an evolutionary algorithm-based methodology inspired by biological evolution to find computer programs that perform a user defined task. It is a specialization of Genetic Algorithms (GA) where each individual is a computer program. It is a machine learning technique used to optimize a population of computer programs according to a fitness span determined by a program's ability to perform a given computational task.
