The automatic construction of classifiers (programs able to correctly classify data collected
from the real world) is one of the major problems in pattern recognition and in a wide area related
to artificial intelligence, including data mining. In this paper, we present G-Net, a distributed
evolutionary algorithm able to infer classifiers from precollected data. The main features of the
system include robustness with respect to parameter settings, use of the minimum description
length (MDL) criterion coupled with a stochastic search bias, coevolution as high-level control
strategy, ability to face problems requiring structured representation languages, and suitability
