Relationships to Other Concepts
This chapter will relate our concepts of computational self-awareness and self-expression to other efforts in computer science and engineering under the self-awareness label. Depending on the fields, the term self-awareness may have different meanings and may be more or less defined. Considering mainly disciplines which explicitly cover self-awareness, we present a selection of clusters of research, and their interpretation of the term. The examples range from basic, but efficient, electronic communication systems, through self-awareness in robotics and large IT systems, to more abstract and formal concepts of self-awareness emerging collectively through interaction of simple nodes. While there are many examples of work addressing self-awareness at different levels, there still seems to be a lack of general definitions and frameworks for working with self-awareness and self-expression in a computing context.
