Hi, Mark, thanks for your question.
Intel® DAAL provides algorithmic kernels for distributed computation which can be used in conjunction with middleware system of your choice.
While we did not test Intel® DAAL algorithms with AKKA middleware we expect the library to properly operate given Intel® DAAL objects are not simultaneously used from different threads.
The present version of Intel® DAAL provides C++ and Java APIs, thus you would need to develop respective wrappers to use the library from Erlang.
Please, feel free to ask additional questions on the integration aspects of the library and we will be happy to help.
