A novel methodology is suggested for the selection of exemplars in algorithm training and testing. The practicality of this new approach is illustrated in relation to Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) by an electronic nose system. The proposed method, combining Pulse Coupled Neural Networks Factoring with Evolutionary Algorithms is compared with use of a traditional Principal Component Analysis, and a development strategy combining the two is suggested.
