Victor Hurdugaci (https://twitter.com/victorhurdugaci) presents "Orleans: Distributed Virtual Actors for Programmability and Scalability (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Orleans-MSR-TR-2014-41.pdf)"

However, the popular actor model platforms still pass many distributed systems problems to the developers.
