The immune system exhibits properties such as learning, distributivity continual adaptation, context dependent response and memory during the lifetime of a host. This paper argues that such properties are essential for the creation of future context-aware and ubiquitous systems where the need for such properties is becoming increasingly clear. To that end, we present an immune inspired system, which draws heavily on the immune network metaphor to create a metastable context-aware memory system that could be delivered in small hand-held devices.
