The term antifragile was coined by Nicholas Nassim Taleb.

An article https://tidbits.com/2021/07/30/apple-is-now-an-antifragile-c... includes a brief description of the term.

Taleb puts systems into three categories:

Fragile: Prone to break under stress
Robust: Resilient against stressors
Antifragile: Actually improve under stress
