I hit upon the paper titled “Immune Programming”. On its first impression, it seemed to me that it is about programming the immune system. However, in actuality, the paper is about the automatic generation of computer programs using the approaches inspired by vertebrate immune system.

It is indeed quite admirable that evolution has invented so many things that scientists don’t stop discovering new and novel things which might be useful and applicable.
