This paper describes a system based on evolutionary learning, called MORPH, that semi-automates the generation of morphological programs. MORPH maintains a population of morphological programs that is continually enhanced. The first phase of each learning cycle synthesizes morphological sequences that extract novel features which increase the population's diversity. The second phase combines these newly formed operator sequences into larger programs that are better than the individual programs. A stochastic selection process eliminates the poor performers, while the survivors serve as the basis of another learning cycle. Experimental results are presented for binary and grayscale target recognition problems
