About ao

The ao computer is a decentralized, actor-oriented computing environment built on the Arweave network, designed to host an indefinite number of parallel processes without limitations on their size or form. It facilitates trustless and cooperative computing by allowing flexible integration of various virtual machines, security models, and payment options, all unified on a global platform. Key features include a modular architecture, message-passing standard, and the ability to run processes akin to smart contracts, offering users a scalable, secure, and customizable computing experience.
