In this book we have argued that in order to deal with the complexities of future computing systems, including size, decentralisation, uncertainty, dynamics and heterogeneity, greater levels of self-awareness on the part of such systems will be important. While this has long been agreed in principle, only now have we begun to establish a principled approach to the design of self-aware systems.
