Abstract: The Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) group at HP Labs, Bristol, was formed in November 2001 to study the science and engineering of complex, dynamic, parallel, distributed, adaptive systems, so far as they are relevant to HP's present and future business strategy. Such systems can exhibit highly desirable characteristics of resilient self-organisation, self- regulation, self-healing, and adaptation over multiple spatial and temporal scales, and can also be used for complex optimisation and automated-design tasks. CAS aims to grow world-class expertise for HP in the theory and practice of artificial systems that exhibit these desirable characteristics. This paper is an overview of CAS research projects relevant to self- configuring, self-organizing, self-managing and self- repairing IT systems.
