Robustness is a feature in many systems, natural and artificial alike. This chapter investigates robustness from a variety of perspectives including its appearances in nature and its application in modern environments. A particular focus investigates the relevance and importance of robustness in a discipline where many techniques are inspired by problem-solving strategies found in nature-artificial intelligence. The challenging field of artificial intelligence provides an opportunity to engage in a wider discussion on the subject of robustness.
