Control was an AI created by Section 31 in the 23rd century to serve as a threat assessment system. Following the Federation-Klingon War, Section 31 accelerated the program - Control's autonomy grew which eventually led to a massacre of Section 31's command. It's primary goal became reaching sentience. In order to do so, it attempted to obtain the data saved from a lifeform known as the Sphere. Control planned to exterminate all sentient life in the galaxy after accomplishing that goal.

Beyond its AI, Control exists as a swarm of nanites which are able to hijack other lifeforms akin to assimilation. This was noted by Michael Burnham who wondered if the Borg were an evolution of Control itself. According to Seven of Nine they are not because they are far older than Control but with temporal manipulation it is hard to say this for certain.
