Definition: evolware

(EVOLvable hardWARE) A future computing architecture that can modify its own circuitry to improve performance for solving the problems it is given. As far fetched as it sounds, self modification of hardware is already possible. For example, FPGAs are a type of logic chip that can be reprogrammed in place. Exactly how that would be done is based on some pretty complicated software. See wares.
