With the increase in information on the Internet, the strive to find more effective tools for distinguishing between interesting and non-interesting material is increasing. Drawing analogies from the biological immune system, this paper presents an immune-inspired algorithm called AISEC that is capable of continuously classifying electronic mail as interesting and non-interesting without the need for re-training. Comparisons are drawn with a nave Bayesian classifier and it is shown that the proposed system performs as well as the nave Bayesian system and has a great potential for augmentation
