  title={Artificial Immune Systems : Using the Immune System as Inspiration for Data Mining},
  author={J. K. Timmis and Thomas Knight},
Copyright © 2002, Idea Group Publishing. The immune system is highly distributed, highly adaptive, self-organising in nature, maintains a memory of past encounters, and has the ability to continually learn about new encounters. From a computational viewpoint, the immune system has much to offer by way of inspiration.
