Future: Simple Async, Parallel & Distributed Processing in R - What's Next?

January 30, 2020

Future is a minimal and unifying framework for asynchronous, parallel, and distributed computing in R. It is designed for robustness, consistency, scalability, extendability, and adoptability - all in the spirit of "developer writes code once, user runs it anywhere". It is being used in production for high-performance computing and asynchronous UX, among other things. In this talk, I will discuss common feature requests, recent progress we have made, and what is the pipeline.
