When you get here you can come in via the patio. Don't be scared by the metal gate and sign. It's accessible via the outside stairs near True Food. There is a parking garage next door for those coming by vehicle. And, there is a walkway to the patio on the 3rd floor of the garage nearest moms organic market.

Metro: The Dunn Loring metro station is about 0.7 miles from our meetup location. It’s very walkable, but if you’d prefer a bus, the 402 Southbound and 1A/1B/1C Westbound leave from Dunn Loring Station about every 5-10 minutes (see a schedule for more detailed timetable).

If you're late, we totally understand–please still come! (via the patio is best) Just be sure to slip in quietly if a speaker is presenting.

A Universal Modular ACTOR Formalism for Artificial Intelligence by Hewitt et al.
Presented by Hugo Estrada
pdf: http://worrydream.com/refs/Hewitt-ActorModel.pdf

This paper proposes a modular ACTOR architecture and definitional method for artificial intelligence that is conceptually based on a single kind of object: actors [or, if you will, virtual processors, activation frames, or streams]. The formalism makes no presuppositions about the representation of primitive data structures and control structures. Such structures can be programmed, micro-coded, or hard wired in a uniform modular fashion. In fact it is impossible to determine whether a given object is "really" represented as a list, a vector, a hash table, a function, or a process. The architecture will efficiently run the coming generation of PLANNER-like artificial intelligence languages including those requiring a high degree of parallelism. The efficiency is gained without loss of programming generality because it only makes certain actors more efficient; it does not change their behavioral characteristics. The architecture is general with respect to control structure and does not have or need goto, interrupt, or semaphore primitives. The formalism achieves the goals that the disallowed constructs are intended to achieve by other more structured methods.
