This paper makes a case for the use of Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) in the area of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) for anomaly detection and long term monitoring. A brief literature review of some of the solutions developed for AAL and the use of AIS in other fields of research is presented. The authors advocate the use of AIS in AAL based on their unique features and their ability to address problems specific to the long term monitoring of people. An improved method for the optimisation of detector generation for AIS, which uses a novel intelligent seeding technique, is presented. The new seeding technique is compared with two other detector seeding methods. The simulation results are presented showing an improvement in the classification accuracy and warranting current and future work.
