Multimodal Dynamic Optimisation is a challenging problem, used in this paper as a framework for the qualitative comparison between Evolutionary Algorithms and Artificial Immune Systems. It is argued that while Evolutionary Algorithms have inherent diversity problems that do not allow them to successfully deal with multimodal dynamic optimisation, the biological immune system involves natural processes for maintaining and boosting diversity and thus serves well as a metaphor for tackling this problem. We review the basic evolutionary and immune-inspired approaches to multimodal dynamic optimisation, we identify correspondences and differences and point out essential computation elements.
