Machines are an integral part of modern societies; they extend and expand the ability of the humankind to manipulate their environment by transcending the natural limitations intrinsic to humans. Advances in computationally enabled sensing, learning, action and control mechanisms and related techniques allow a wider variety of tasks and activities to be automated and passed from humans to machines. This paper aims to outline characteristics of this phenomenon by examining the foundations of machinery, automation and computation and consequently comparing the characteristics of automated and autonomous artefacts. As a result, the difference between the concepts is brought forward and implications to the design of autonomous machines and artefacts are discussed.
