The identification of macro-parameters (used as building-blocks) is one of the most important tasks for automatically evolving decision-tree induction algorithms. These building-blocks will be used by the GP for automatically evolving new decision-tree induction algorithms. In this context, this work proposes to investigate other building-blocks as well as some variations of the ones proposed by the proponent.
