When building the schedule for the International Future Computing Summit, we realized the ramifications of the Client-to-Cloud Revolution go well beyond technology and content. It also represents new thinking in where and how our computing world lives. Is it in the cloud? Local? Between the two? What does that mean for privacy and digital rights? What legal considerations do content and technology makers need to think about? Read More

While the Client-to-Cloud Revolution is partly composed of cloud streaming technologies, it also requires strong self-sufficient capabilities on the client side through platforms like PC, mobile, console, and others. One of those touted capabilities is ray tracing, and it is therefore important to find efficient ways to achieve this with accessible levels of computing.

Exemplifying future computing, Adshir is strategically important to the Client-to-Cloud Revolution because it has demonstrated through patent-protected technology that it is able to achieve cross-platform real-time ray tracing in a manner the industry is seeking. Dr. Reuven Bakalash, CEO of Adshir, will be giving insights on how this is achieved at the International Future Computing Summit.
