It is widely accepted that the design of morphological filters which are optimal in some sense is a difficult task. In this paper we want to propose a new method for the design of morphological filters. This method is known in Artificial Intelligence as the Genetic Algorithm and is applied to difficult combinatorial problems. Here we want to show the possibility of using this method in the field of mathematical morphology.
