Historically, Software has been defined as a set of computer programs and associated documentation and data. This is in contrast to hardware, from which the system is built and which actually performs the work.

Since software is made from computer programs that are predominately either written by programmers (AKA coders) using programming languages or programs that mimic what coders do (e.g. code recommendation technology like ChatGPT), MindAptiv’s wantware is arguably not software (in the historic sense). Wantware bypasses programming languages (eliminating coding) by using meaning coordinates to represent what is wanted/intended so that software is created as output of wantware. Machine Instructions (e.g.. binaries) are generated for the target hardware, in real-time.
