Can a Developmental AIS Provide Immunity to a Multi-cellular Robotics System?

The major challenge to multi-cellular robotics system is how to ensure the system is homeostatically stable. This position paper proposes a developmental artificial immune system (dev-AIS) framework that tries to provide and maintain homeostasis to the multi-cellular robotics system. If immunity is defined as the ability to maintain homeostasis; the dev-AIS framework will be designed based on the understanding and the abstraction of how different organisms attain for this property through evolution and developmental process. Progress in evolution drove the evolution of immunity from this simple relationship to the development of the immune system in multi-cellular organisms.
