Abstract

Cognisant of the gulf between engineers and immunologists
that currenty hinders a truly inter-disciplinary approach to
the field of Artificial Immune Systems (AIS), we propose
a redefinition of the term AIS practitioner, as an individual who identifies those components and interactions captured in computational immunology models that are responsible for a particular property of interest (POI), and distils from these a set of algorithms and principles that can be applied in an engineering domain. We outline the role of the cross-disciplinary practitioner and the potential benefits to the field.
