Jamie Ridgway explains what actors are, why we need them, what they are helpful for, the languages built around this programming paradigm, along with some demos showing actor-based apps.

Code PaLOUsa is a conference designed to cover all aspects of software development regardless of technology stack. It has sessions revolving around Microsoft, Java, and other development platforms; along with session on higher levels that are platform agnostic. The conference schedule will feature presentations from well-known professionals in the software development community.

The presenter was presenting himself ?
I could not see the slides.
Next time, be cautious, you have to focus on the slides too.
Re: Hidden slides
The slides change in sync with the video.
E language and AsyncScala
But it fails to mention one of most usable languages for asynchronous programming: E (www.erights.org). It uses more fine grained asynchronous components (Actor = Vat in E, asynchronous componets live in Vat) because of this, much there are much more scenarios where memory could be safely shared between components.
There was a presentation on this language on infoq.com: www.infoq.com/presentations/From-E-to-EcmaScript
I have also implemented concepts from E in Scala (asyncobjects.sf.net/asyncscala).
