What scientists have been saying about GPTIPS

Note: MGGP is multigene genetic programming, the machine learning model discovery engine that powers GPTIPS

"Numerical examples show the superb accuracy, efficiency, and great potential of MGGP. Contrary to artificial neural networks and many other soft computing tools, MGGP provides constitutive prediction equations."1

One of the most powerful methods used for non-linear regression problems ... The results obtained show the power of MGGP for producing an efficient nonlinear regression model, in terms of accuracy and complexity. 2

A remarkable control can be exerted over the maximum complexity of the model evolved by MGGP in comparison with the standard GP.1

It can be observed (...) that the MGGP-based solution remarkably outperforms the other models. In addition to its high performance, the MGGP-based equation is very simple, and therefore, it can easily be manipulated in practical circumstances.1

MGGP has an advantage that once the evolved models are trained, they can be used as quick and accurate tools for prediction purposes.1

The efficacy of the developed MGGP based models (Mode-I and Model-II) are compared with that of the available ANN and SVM models respectively. It is found that the performance of Model-I is better than the ANN model in terms of rate of successful prediction …, whereas Model-II is as good as the SVM model.3

We reviewed existing models of the drag coefficient for the smooth sphere ... We used multigene genetic programming for developing high accurate drag coefficient models... The developed models give (up to almost 70%) better results than the best existing correlations in terms of the sum of squares of logarithmic deviations (SSLD).4

Of the two AI methods, MGGP has shown better performance than SVR [support vector regression]. The excellent performance of the MGGP model on the testing data indicates that it is able to extrapolate the behavior of SWCNTs [carbon nanotubes] at temperatures of 600 and 900 K. In addition, the implementation of MGGP requires only the adjustment of its few parameter settings such as population size, number of generations, maximum number of genes, maximum depth of tree, etc. which can also be set without having in-depth knowledge about its functioning.5

MGGP was employed to predict the total amount of measured solar irradiation from six different independent variables. The proposed methodology is backed by adequate numerical simulation and is proved to give better results than the previous approaches by other researchers using fuzzy logic and neural networks.6

The developed model equation is found to more compact compared to the MARS and other AI models and can easily be used by the professionals with the help of a spreadsheet without going into the complexity of model development.7

The proposed GP model is found to be (more) effective and efficient than MARS, ANN (DENN, BRNN), SVM and other statistical models7
