Infrastructure for engineered emergence on sensor/actuator networks

  title={Infrastructure for engineered emergence on sensor/actuator networks},
  author={Jacob Beal and Jonathan Bachrach},
  journal={IEEE Intelligent Systems},
The study of self-organizing systems has now reached the tool-building phase, in which a new discipline of self-managing systems engineering can begin to emerge. The next step is to refine the principles of self-organization into a system of composable parts suitable for engineering - much as components such as capacitors, transistors, and resistors capture electromagnetism principles for electronic engineering. We've begun the process of transforming the science into an engineering discipline… CONTINUE READING
