A smart system exhibits the three important properties: (i) interactive, collective, coordinated and parallel operation (ii) self-organization through emergent properties (iii) adaptive and flexible operation. A hierarchy based on metric entropy is suggested among the computational systems that transcend from the unsmart to the smart system through a phase transition like phenomenon. Understanding smart systems is useful to solve hard-optimization problem inspired by the self-organizing processes found in nature. Such systems will be valuable to create artificial systems made up of exotic matter to solve specific problems in particular domains of interest with a high efficiency.
