On Autonomic Computing Architectures

We discuss the key features of autonomic computing and their relationship to AI systems. We present a generic architecture for autonomic computing systems and propose a computational model based on communicating automata networks to implement such architectures. We illustrate this approach with an intelligent device discovery tool that analyzes the inventory and topology of large computer networks.
