Towards Self-aware PerAda Systems
Pervasive Adaptation (PerAda) refers to massive-scale pervasive information and communication systems which are capable of autonomously adapting to highly dynamic and open technological and user contexts. PerAda systems are thus a special case of collective adaptive systems which have particular constraints e.g. they are networked and highly distributed; they involve interaction with humans; they are large scale; the boundaries of systems are fluid; their context is dynamic; and they operate using uncertain information. In order to achieve their ultimate goal of adapting seamlessly to their users and to deliver the expected quality of service at all times, we propose that these systems must exhibit self-awareness. This position statement proposes mechanisms by which self-awareness might be achieved.
