Abstract

The concept of an information immune system (IIS) is introduced, in which undesirable information is eliminated before it can reach the user. The IIS is inspired by the natural immune systems that protect us from pathogens. IISs from multiple individuals can be combined to form a group IIS which filters out information undesirable to any of the members. The relationship between our proposed IIS architecture and the natural immune system is outlined, and potential applications, including information filtering, interactive design, and collaborative design, are discussed.
