Abstract

We present a framework which integrates artificial neural networks, artificial immune systems and a novel artificial endocrine system. The natural counterparts of these three components are usually assumed to be the principal actors in maintaining homeostasis within biological systems. This paper proposes a system which promises to capitalise on the self-organizing properties of these artificial systems to yield artificially homeostatic systems. The components develop in a common environment and interact in ways which draw heavily on their biological counterparts for inspiration.
