    Research of environment adaptive software

    The research to achive the second software development paradigm shift following Java. To take advantage of advanced hardware (GPU, FPGA, IoT devices, etc), environment adaptive software does not hide hardware, but automatically converts and cofigurates software optimally on the targeted hardware. This is a paradigm shift of environmental adaptation in software development.
