Actor, an elegant model for concurrent and distributed computation

Conference

We need a way to exploit modern hardware like multicore systems. Traditionally, it is done with raw threads and synchronizations, which leads to problems that are hard to debug.

Let’s explore a different approach through the actor model, a conceptual model to deal with concurrent computation.

We’ll try to understand:

  • How do actors communicate without sharing memory?

  • How do actors communicate in a distributed system?

  • How can we have a fault tolerant distributed system using an actor model?
