Self-awareness concepts from psychology are inspiring new approaches for engineering computing systems which operate in complex dynamic environments. There has been a broad and long-standing interest in self-awareness for computing, but only recently has a systematic understanding of self-awareness and how it can be used and evaluated been developed. In this chapter, we take inspiration from human self-awareness to develop new notions of computational self-awareness and self-expression. We translate concepts from psychology to the domain of computing, introducing key ideas in self-aware computing. In doing so, this chapter therefore paves the way for subsequent work in this book.
