[Research] Deploying Predictive Models with the Actor Framework

A session at PAPIs '15

Friday 7th August, 2015

1:30pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Build a better, faster, more efficient predictive API with the Actor model of programming. Latency, logging, full utilization are all easily handled with this framework. Upwork (formerly Elance-oDesk) freelancer availability model — anticipating who's looking for work right now — is now a real-time service, without costly or complicated build-out of our stack or our datacenter, thanks to the Actor model.
