Our World Statistics Day conversations have been a great reminder of how much statistics can inform our lives. Do you have an example of how statistics has made a difference in your life? Share your story with the Community!
As computing has advanced, I've gone from 1 core to 2 cores to 4 cores... to 64 threads on my workstation. Meanwhile .jsl has effectively remained single threaded. I know some platforms will utilize all threads, but I'd like to be able to farm out simple jsl operations at will to multiple threads. For example, if I have a script which operates row-wise on 10,000,000 rows of data, if I'm iterating by row in a for loop and I know each row's result is independent of the other rows, I'd like to split that operation into 64 asynchronous for loops, pause other execution while the 64 loops complete in parallel, then move back to a single threaded, synchronous script after all are complete, much like I would in .py with Pool() and poolObject.join.
