Abstract

Humans experiencing unexpected feedback to certain actions which they are not able to explain, might develop superstitious behaviour. In this paper, we discuss that similar behaviour might also occur in engineered systems. We provide a thought-experiment regarding such behaviour in computational systems. In this paper, we propose a first step towards improved runtime systems integration based on a the ability to become aware of previously-unknown others and their actions, as described in networked self-awareness.
