We are at the cusp of a revolution: we can now create machines that adapt their behaviour based on their environment and the results of their actions. The enablers for this revolution are sensing, communication, and computation technologies, and the feedback control algorithms that rule the machines. These creations will have unprecedented effects on our lives—some welcome, others not. In this talk, D’Andrea outlines how we got here, where we are going, and the consequences.
