Hardware –> Software
The way technology is developing, almost any very complex system is very likely to have both forms of functionality in its ultimate implementation. Consider how many microcontrollers there are in your car… or your toaster.
With nanotechnology, this blurring will extend well beyond control circuits to virtually every aspect of a system. Nanocontrollers will be so small and cheap that they will be ubiquitous. At the same time, the complexity of the mechanical parts of the system will be so great that they will almost certainly have to be designed in detail by "matter compilers."
