The transformation of signals to symbols is critically important if higher levels of image recognition are to use them as building blocks for scene interpretation. In this paper, we investigate the optimisation of the feature extraction chain by using Genetic Algorithms. The fitness function is a performance measure which reflects the quality of an extracted set of features. We will present some results and compare them with a Hill-Climbing optimisation approach.
