The International Future Computing Association enables what’s next through ecosystem collaboration in compute performance and platforms, immersive technology, and innovative content and applications.

WHAT IS FUTURE COMPUTING?
JOIN TIFCA!

What is TIFCA & What do we do?

The 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 lay down the groundwork and enhance the viability of enabling what’s next.  We achieve this through influential membership meetings, stakeholder education, market-building events, special initiatives, and more.

TIFCA is comprised of three pillar groups that include the Alliance of Computing Technologists, the Immersive Technology Alliance, and the Alliance of Content Creators.  It is purposely structured this way because even though each division has its own purpose and industry space, the pillars are interrelated in that each success helps drive the other.

SEE THE REVOLUTION!

What is TIFCA Working on Today?

Client-to-Cloud EcosystemClick Image to Download / Enlarge

Computing is heading towards a world of any place, any time, and any device user experiences made possible by seamless client-cloud infrastructure and a create-once reach-all device ecosystem for application and content creators alike.  TIFCA is leading this journey through the future computing pillars of compute performance and platforms, immersive technology, innovative content and applications, and their related ecosystem, infrastructure, and standards thereof.

Content, Software, Hardware ecosystems

TIFCA is working in stages to help develop a Create-Once, Reach All (CORA) ecosystem that enables content to run on multiple hardware platforms from one version of software. The Foresight 2020: Cross-Platform Survey is pursuing through industry-wide study an understanding of how each member of the ecosystem is defining cross-platform, and what their main challenges are with supporting cross-platform content and hardware.

Project CORA Executive Summary Published!

By Neil SchneiderTIFCA News

Project CORA LogoProject CORA (Create Once Reach All) is the proposal to enable a single piece of content to run on many client devices from a single workflow and build process. It can take advantage of the capabilities of each client device, and support a client, cloud, and hybrid client-cloud workload balanced compute ecosystem.

The International Future Computing Association has published an Executive Summary of its soon to be released Project CORA Vision Paper.  TIFCA welcomes the industry to contribute to Project CORA through participation, framework engineering, and bold new ideas. Read More
