The world overstates the present fear of future risk. Autonomous systems are our future. One day we will wake up to some event that will make it clear that the robots have taken over but just not in the way we always thought. Robots take many forms. A driverless car is a robot. A drone over Afghanistan is a robot. Siri is a robot as are high frequency trading systems. And the autonomous systems that Amazon uses to manage their warehouses and logistics are collections of robots acting in concert. In short, robots, or autonomous systems, are slowly taking over the execution of key processes that run our businesses and our lives. We define an autonomous system to be an integration at the data and process level of three components: sensors or the Internet of Things that collect data; big data that stores and processes data; and artificial intelligence, which takes the information, makes decisions, and acts. On occasions, we add in actuators, which are motors that are responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. Other words for an autonomous system with actuators are "robot," "driverless car," and "unmanned drone."

In this book we show how autonomous systems when coupled with the blockchain and additive manufacturing will substantially change business models and our lives. It is clear that the transition to more autonomous systems operating in our society will come from the ground up and will be used to support processes that do not involve humans and human safety. Mostly this falls into the realm of logistics, farming, and some financial services. It does not fall into the area of healthcare where the adoption of autonomous system will be slower and presumably much more highly regulated. Healthcare though will be the place where the human and autonomous system evolves over time and shows how the weaknesses of machines are solved by the strengths of humans and vice versa. There is one area that can serve as the test bed for autonomous system in other industries. The logistics industry is already highly automated but it can also serve as a test bed for autonomous ports, trucks, planes, and our personal favorite, the Trone, which is a drone that can carry at least as much cargo as a long haul tractor-trailer. Change is coming and it is in many forms and will show up in different places at different times.
