This paper is an invitation to examine a class of socio-technical systems - artificial socio-cognitive (ASCS) - whose distinctive nature is that they may involve humans as well as artificial agents who interact in a regulated milieu. We propose a characterization of these ASCS and build on that characterization to describe how these systems evolve.
