Neil Schneider's Blog
Mr. Schneider is the Executive Director of The International Future Computing Association (http://www.tifca.com). TIFCA 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. Its 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.
Future computing which TIFCA is based on is the practice of turning dreams into reality with computers and computer media. Its fundamental pillars include compute performance & platforms, immersive technology, and innovative content and applications.
TIFCA's current focus is the Client-to-Cloud Revolution. The client-to-cloud ecosystem is going through a revolution where cloud and independent platforms like PC, console, mobile, and other devices are developing new types of collaboration in distribution, and software and content execution. With the advent of 5G and other connectivity breakthroughs, devices of all sizes and abilities are expected to be enabled beyond the processing power they are built with. TIFCA is fostering industry collaboration to make this Client-to-Cloud Revolution (#clienttocloudrevolution) both possible and effective on a global scale.
TIFCA's flagship conference is the International Future Computing Summit which was founded in 2014 under a different brand name and has been held annually ever since.
Mr. Schneider is also the founder of Meant to be Seen (mtbs3D.com). MTBS was the launch point of the Oculus Rift and marks the spot where Oculus founders John Carmack and Palmer Luckey first met. MTBS is also the home of the free open source Vireio Perception VR drivers and the GameGradeVR quality assurance mechanism.
As a follow-up to "Grasping the Client-to-Cloud Revolution", Neil Schneider discusses the innovations and market breakthroughs he sees in store for content creators and technology makers in this developing next era of computing.
Google Stadia, XBOX's Project xCloud, Bethesda's Orion technology, and more are just scratching the surface of what's to come. Neil Schneider, Executive Director of TIFCA, shares his insights on where things are heading in the future computing world.
“The History of The Future” by Blake Harris covers the history of Oculus and the early beginnings of modern VR. As Founder of Meant to be Seen, the launch point of Oculus, Neil Schneider talks about the amazing ramifications of what was achieved.
Brian Merchant from Gizmodo gave factually poignant coverage of Leap Con. This resulted in a eureka moment which defined what Magic Leap and products like it are about, what they deliver, and what their futures are through three critical words.
The Oculus Quest is Facebook's latest innovation in the virtual and mixed reality space. However, a few choice words on how their ecosystem is structured could make the difference between effectively owning their market, or being a slave to it.
Billions of dollars later (and many more to come, I'm sure), seemingly wild investments in Magic Leap, Oculus, and more are put into future computing perspective.

I think Nintendo is completely on the ball. The Client-to-Cloud Revolution goes beyond the confines of cloud-streaming and 5G, and I think it will require a collaborative model between local and remote processing. What I got out of this article is that Nintendo is promoting the importance of the user ...
