By definition, autonomic systems require no ongoing human interaction. That does not imply that humans are uninvolved. Autonomic systems are governed by policies that are defined by humans. Such policies can be defined by system developers setting defaults policies or by system owners. Once policies are defined, autonomic systems must operate according to those policies. We disclose an autonomic policy mechanism.
