Artificial Immune System (AIS) is a class of algorithms used in computational systems with the principles of the immune system of higher class of vertebrates. The algorithms of Artificial Immune System (AIS) typically exploit the characteristics of the immune system in terms of learning, memory and as a means of solving problems. The simulated operations in Artificial Immune System (AIS) include pattern recognition, hypermutation, clonal selection of B cells, negative selection of T cells, affinity maturation etc.
Philosophy of Artificial Immune System (AIS)
The work of Cognitive Science is not only to develop technologies directly related to human beings, but for products, services which are carried out through the usage of the subs of Cognitive Science, such as Artificial Immune System in various products and services which are intended for either increasing the quality of life of human beings or for next level entertainment. Machine Learning, Intelligent agent and many other such important growing sub branches of science.
There is another terminology which has no relationship with Artificial Immune System, that is the DNA Computing. In other words, Artificial Immune System is not intended for further understanding and treatment of Immune System in any higher animals. Artificial Immune System has nothing to do right now with Antibody production, for example.
As per Dr. Dasgupta, Artificial Immune System consists of the following components :
- Computational algorithms based on immunological principles
- Immunogenetic approaches
- Immunity-based optimization and learning
- Autonomous Decentralized/Self-Organizing Systems
- Immunity-based Design and Scheduling
- Immunological approaches to computer & network security
- Artificial Immune systems and their applications
Artificial Immune System is one of the practical application of the hypothesis, theories like the long said theory of Ant Colony Optimization.
Current works with Artificial Immune System (AIS)
Current is a relative terminology – at the time of writing. Probably the most work on Artificial Immune Systems has been done by Dr. Dipankar Dasgupta, Memphis University. Memphis University has a quite good setup for the study of Artificial Immune System,
There are many things to learn around Artificial Immune System to learn or to get degrees. I am personally not much academically interested in Artificial Immune System, because it will divert my way of thought, but if you need to get good amount of resources on Artificial Immune System, you can use the Contact Us form on the footer for requesting so.
