The progress of databases in fields such as medical, business, education, marketing, etc., is colossal because of the developments in information technology. Knowledge discovery from such concealed bulk databases is a tedious task. For this, data mining is one of the promising solutions and clustering is one of its applications. The clustering process groups the data objects related to each other in a similar cluster and diverse objects in another cluster. The literature presents many clustering algorithms for data clustering. Optimisation-based clustering algorithm is one of the recently developed algorithms for the clustering process to discover the optimal cluster based on the objective function. In our previous method, direct operative fractional lion optimisation algorithm was proposed for data clustering. In this paper, we designed a new clustering algorithm called adaptive decisive operative fractional lion optimisation algorithm based on multi-kernel function. Moreover, a new fitness function called multi-kernel WL index is proposed for the selection of the best centroid point for clustering. The experimentation of the proposed ADOFL algorithm is carried out over two benchmarked datasets, Iris and Wine. The performance of the proposed ADOFL algorithm is validated over existing clustering algorithms such as particle swarm clustering algorithm, modified PSC algorithm, lion algorithm, fractional lion algorithm, and DOFL. The result shows that the maximum clustering accuracy of 79.51 is obtained by the proposed method in data clustering.
