    Abstract

    In this paper, we describe further explorations with our prototype architecture and implementation of the Actor model[1] of concurrent computation, ACTORKIT[2][3]. Actors provide a mechanism to exploit the multi-core processors of modern day computer architectures, in an intuitive and natu- ral fashion. ACTORKIT is hosted in an existing programming language as native constructs (Swift). We describe some of our extensions to the language and our experiences with the development, and evolution, of our prototype implementation.
