Clonal selection principle based CLONALG is one of the most popular artificial immune system (AIS) models. It has been proposed to perform pattern matching and optimization task but has not been applied for classification tasks. Some work has been reported that accommodates CLONALG for classification but generally they do not perform well. This paper proposes an approach for classification using CLONALG with competitive results in terms of classification accuracy, compared to other AIS models and evolutionary algorithms tested on the same benchmark data sets. We named our algorithm CLONAX.
