Abstract

We all know Node.js as the right tool to service many async i/o bound requests. But what about cpu bound services? Could it be the right choice?

As a fun exercise we will explore this scenario simulating a sandbox living world populated by multiple agents. Each agent powered by cpu-heavy ai techniques, we will see how the world evolves and how to scale the whole game simulation.
