Clonal selection theory describes selection, proliferation, and mutation process of immune cells during immune response. In this Artificial Immune System (AIS), We select not only the highest affinity antibody, but also other antibodies which have higher affinity than that of current memory cell during affinity mutation process. Simulation results for pattern recognition show that the improved model has stronger noise immunity ability than other models.
