While I was watching this talk I was wondering about the difference between 
the mainstream computing issues verses mathematical computing issues.

I get the impression that the mainstream issue, from this talk, is about how 
to run multiple algorithms in parallel?

If we are trying to solve a set of equations, is there a natural parallelism ? 
For the reasons discussed in the talk, should a rule based method be preferred 
wherever possible and explicit coding of algorithms be discouraged?
