On the role of the AIS practitioner.

  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.
