Athera was a trial cloud service platform by Foundry that made it possible for content creators of all sizes to get access to the production and rendering abilities often limited to big production houses. Content creation was an important topic at the International Future Computing Summit and Foundry is a recognized leader in this regard. Mathieu Mazerolle, Product Manager for Cloud at Foundry, shared what they learned and what the industry can learn from their Client-to-Cloud experience. Very interesting!
IN THE NEWS
What better way to usher in American Thanksgiving than a warm and fuzzy Games Panel from the International Future Computing Summit?!?
- Bill Rehbock, Content Partnerships at Blade Group / Shadow
- Jen Maclean, Head of Worldwide Business Development, Small & Mid-sized Studios, Game Tech at Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- Nick Thomas, Vice-President Commercial Partnerships at Hatch Entertainment
- Kevin Robertson, Head of Business Development at AccelByte.
Some points of discussion included different mindsets of how cloud gaming could and should work, the perception of the industry (is there an industry?) in cloud gaming, what this all means for game developers, and much more.
This turned out great! Each year, the International Future Computing Summit (formerly known as Immersed) runs a Futurists Panel hosted by top media. This year’s moderator was Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer for GamesBeat at VentureBeat.
This International Future Computing Summit Visionaries Panel turned out great! Moderated by yours truly, it featured Dr. Jon Peddie from Jon Peddie Research, Arvind Kumar from Intel Corporation and ACT Chair Representative in TIFCA, and Daryl Sartain from Advanced Micro Devices and ITA Chair in TIFCA.
In addition to talking about the developing Client-to-Cloud Revolution, we also discussed why leading industry competitors are working together on the effort, who benefits from what is happening here, what success looks like in a collaborative ecosystem, and much more.
Check it out and see what you think! Lots more videos to share from the conference.
Immersive technology is one of the three pillars of future computing – the others being compute performance and platforms and innovative content and applications. Daryl Sartain is Director and Worldwide Head of XR, Displays, and Wireless Ecosystems for the Radeon Technology Group at Advanced Micro Devices. He is also Chair of the Immersive Technology Alliance in TIFCA.
As a Visionary Class Speaker at The International Future Computing Summit, Daryl talked about some of the experiential considerations that different kinds of users need and want and how the whole ecosystem will have a shared responsibility in delivering on these needs in the Client-to-Cloud Revolution.
Also proud to report that Advanced Micro Devices was a Silver Level sponsor for the IFC Summit.
This turned out to be a VERY important presentation at The International Future Computing Summit; especially for those dependent on what’s next in computing.
Arvind Kumar is Senior Principal Engineer for Intel Corporation – the Chair company for the Alliance of Computing Technologists in TIFCA. As a Visionary Class Speaker at the International Future Computing Summit, Arvind explained the workings of the Client-to-Cloud Revolution and how its importance goes beyond empowering devices with cloud computing. He also discusses the write-once, reach-many ecosystem for the application and content markets.
Dr. Jon Peddie is CEO of Jon Peddie Research, arguably one of the most influential research firms in the graphics and computing industries.
This year’s International Future Computing Summit was all about the developing Client-to-Cloud Revolution – the journey to the next era of computing – and when Dr. Peddie submitted his presentation for the conference, the Chairs immediately realized his vision is compatible with what we are working to achieve. For this reason, TIFCA had him added to the conference’s Visionary Block.
In this 20 minute presentation, Dr. Peddie gives a pointed outlook of what the next generation of computing could look like. See what you think!
Guess who’s back from hiatus?!?!? Now that the International Future Computing Summit is complete, I can put more time into Meant to be Seen again.
The IFC Summit was TIFCA’s inaugural future computing event in Silicon Valley. It’s the rebranded evolution of the Immersed conference which was founded in 2014 in Toronto, Canada.
This year’s show was all about the Client-to-Cloud Revolution and to our knowledge, is the first time the ecosystem has been gathered in this manner.
This opening presentation is very important because it details the client-to-cloud revolution and what it means to computing as we know it, it talks about the direction the ecosystem is heading towards, and it outlines some short term objectives that TIFCA is working on. See what you think!
Something special for our readers today! We’ve got an interview with Shawn Frayne, CEO of Looking Glass Factory. Not just an interview – stereoscopic 3D footage through our stereoscopic 3D camera in red/blue anaglyph form! Check out the interview and see what you think.
