The future of software and even hardware is based in ever more complex abilities to adapt to highly dynamic change and input. The Internet of Things brings with it input from billions of sources locally and around the globe and for intelligent architects this represents an opportunity to create deep competitive advantage and customer loyalty. 

The Japanese have used intelligent systems for years from cars to trains to vacuum cleaners and there will continue to be smarter and smarter systems. Architects around the world must include this thinking into their designs and strategies. Adaptive social networks, individually designed health care, just in time 3d printing are only some of the components of this coming era.
