The search and detection of the different regions constituting an image is a problem of great complexity and the use of the approximation algorithms is inevitable. For this purpose, several algorithms have been applied. Among the latter, we are interested in bio-inspiration by hybridizing two algorithms: Artificial Immunity Systems (AIS) with Evolutionary Algorithms (AE) in order to benefit from the good codification of the immune systems and the variation of the operators of the evolutionary algorithms, ensuring that the entire population is the solution. The main interests of this hybridization are to minimize the size of the representation of the individuals and to accelerate the convergence.
