The International Future Computing Association develops open frameworks and initiatives that enable technology adoption.

WHAT IS FUTURE COMPUTING?

TIFCA: WHAT and WHY

IFC Summit Futurists PanelThe International Future Computing Association is a network of member companies and institutions that each play a part in what are, and will be, the ultimate tools and experiences that impact our daily lives using computer technology and media.

TIFCA’s mission is to develop open frameworks and initiatives that enable technology adoption.

The International Future Computing Association operates under the following principles:

  • TIFCA is an international non-profit organization.
  • All voting members have equal voting rights.
  • Everyone keeps their own IP. License agreements are arranged when necessary.
  • All membership meetings are subject to standard non-disclosure agreement.

CORA Frameworks

CORA (Create Once Reach All) refers to methods and frameworks that deliver consistent high-end user experiences across diversely powered client devices.  CORA approaches are achieved by leveraging client device, cloud service, content development, and broadband ecosystems.

Today’s CORA frameworks (CORA 1.0) are primarily based on streaming content from the cloud to the client device.  Current examples of CORA 1.0 frameworks are widely demonstrated with cloud gaming, content streaming, and web-based applications.

CORA 2.0 Framework

The next generation of CORA aims to enhance the bridge between client devices and the cloud so that the processing responsibilities could be shared between them with a hybrid workload balanced approach.  Also known as CORA 2.0, these frameworks offer many theoretical benefits like enabling applications to do more for more people, streamlining the use of bandwidth and resources, and potentially growing the total addressable market of users through cloud-enhanced devices and ecosystems.

TIFCA’s Project CORA

Project CORA

Project CORA is TIFCA’s CORA 2.0 proposal to enable a single piece of content to run on diversely powered client devices with a consistent high-end user experience.  It aims to enable this vision by taking advantage of the capabilities of each client device, and leveraging a client, cloud, and hybrid client-cloud workload balanced compute ecosystem framework.

TIFCA is welcoming ecosystem to contribute to this exciting effort!
