VALIS is an effective and robust classification algorithm with a focus on understandability. Its name stems from Vote-ALlocating Immune System, as it evolves a population of artificial antibodies that can bind to the input data, and performs classification through a voting process. In the beginning of the training, VALIS generates a set of random candidate antibodies; at each iteration, it selects the most useful ones to produce new candidates, while the least, are discarded; the process is…

Wiener–Granger Causality Theory Supported by a Genetic Algorithm to Characterize Natural Scenery
Image recognition and classification have been widely used for research in computer vision systems. This paper aims to implement a new strategy called Wiener-Granger Causality theory for classifying


A review of clonal selection algorithm and its applications
The powerful characteristics and general review of CSA are summarized, CSA based hybrid algorithms are reviewed, and open research areas are discussed for further research.
Learning and optimization using the clonal selection principle
This paper proposes a computational implementation of the clonal selection principle that explicitly takes into account the affinity maturation of the immune response and derives two versions of the algorithm, derived primarily to perform machine learning and pattern recognition tasks.
A Comprehensive Benchmark of the Artificial Immune Recognition System (AIRS)
The findings show that AIRS is a stable and robust classifier that produces around average results, which contrasts with earlier claims but shows AIRs is mature enough to be used for mainstream data mining.
LEARNABLE EVOLUTION MODEL: Evolutionary Processes Guided by Machine Learning
A remarkable property of LEM is that it is capable of quantum leaps (“insight jumps”) of the fitness function, unlike Darwinian-type evolution that typically proceeds through numerous slight improvements.
The immune system, adaptation, and machine learning
A dynamical model for the immune system is described that is based on the network hypothesis of Jerne, and is simple enough to simulate on a computer, and has a strong similarity to an approach to learning and artificial intelligence introduced by Holland, called the classifier system.
Clonal selection theory and Clonalg: the clonal selection classification algorithm (CSCA)
The focus of this work is the CLONALG algorithm, specifically the techniques history, previous research and algorithm function, and a new clonal selection inspired technique called the Clonal Selection Classification Algorithm (CSCA), shown to be robust, self-tuning, insensitive to user parameters and competitive as a classification system on common problem domains.
Accuracy-Based Learning Classifier Systems: Models, Analysis and Applications to Classification Tasks
This paper investigates two models of accuracy-based learning classifier systems on different types of classification problems, and provides a model on the learning complexity of LCS which is based on the representative examples given to the system.
A benchmark for cooperative coevolution
A benchmark problem designed to study the behavior and performance of CCEAs, modeling a search for the optimal placement of a set of lamps inside a room and showing how three different cooperative strategies, Parisian Evolution, Group Evolution and Allopatric Group Evolution, can be applied to the problem.
aiNet: An Artificial Immune Network for Data Analysis
This chapter shows that some of the basic aspects of the natural immune system discussed in the previous chapter can be used to propose a novel artificial immune network model with the main goals of
Polar IFS+Parisian Genetic Programming=Efficient IFS Inverse Problem Solving
A new method for treating the inverse problem for Iterated Functions Systems (IFS) using Genetic Programming, based on two original aspects, with a drastic cut-down on CPU-time and good results with small populations in few generations is proposed.
