This paper describes an approach being explored to improve the usefulness of machine learning techniques to classify complex, real world data. The approach involves the use of genetic algorithms as a "front end" to a traditional tree induction system (ID3) in order to find the best feature set to be used by the induction system. This approach has been implemented and tested on difficult texture classification problems. The results are encouraging and indicate significant advantages of the presented approach.
