An inspiration for the next generation BBox kernel

An inspiration for the next generation BBox kernel

Hi All,
I came across this PhD written by Florian Negele at ETHZ:
https://www.research-collection.ethz.ch ... 094-02.pdf
He approached the cooperative multitasking in a very interesting way by combining it with a lock-free programing.

Just curious if this could be a new computation model for the whole framework.

What do you think?

Regards,
Darek

IMHO parallel computing should be realized as separate component. I have such experience with MPI.
All stuff can be done with existing infrastructure. You can run multiple BlackBoxes, share some files in memory, exchange data with TCP etc.

Also an experiment had been done by Ilya Ermakov group - Active BlackBox.

they came to the same point of view. The project is terminated.

BlackBox in a single thread is unique stable instrument. With adding multitasking, threads and so on... you will get troubles like Golang has now.
