The purpose of this study is to explore an alternative means of hand image classification, one that requires minimal human intervention. The main tool for accomplishing this is a Genetic Algorithm (GA). This study is more than just another GA application; it introduces (a) a novel cooperative coevolutionary clustering algorithm with dynamic clustering and feature selection; (b) an extended fitness function, which is particularly suited to an integrated dynamic clustering space. Despite its complexity, the results of this study are clear: the GA evolved an average clustering of 4 clusters, with minimal overlap between them.
