Meeting an artificial immune system

Fugue is an on-going project which offers participants to interact with a virtual (artificial) immune system. They can see and interact with immune cells flowing through a lymphatic vessel and understand how the complex dynamics of the whole are produced by local interactions of viruses, B cells, antibodies, dendritic cells and clotting platelets.


The Artificial Immune System will ‘inhabit’ the virtual space of the master server computer at the Department of Computer Science at UCL that will run the Artificial Immune System continually, providing the possibility of being displayed on different interfaces.

The development process of Fugue is open and transparent, and the audience is involved at every stage. You can fill in the form to contribute and give feedback.
