Remote Work, Cloud Computing Have Implications for Lease Accounting

Auditors Article 202105250631
Companies are notoriously lax in preparing for new accounting standards, such as the forthcoming lease accounting standard for private companies. However, as Deloitte notes in a new poll, some businesses may be even further behind than usual given changes from the pandemic. For instance, real estate needs are changing for companies with employees working remotely. With that adoption of remote work, they may need to exit their lease, modify their lease or execute a sale-and-leaseback transaction. As those scenarios play out, different accounting treatments are needed, according to Deloitte. Deloitte also notes that recent migrations to the cloud could also have an impact as companies adopt the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s cloud computing accounting guidance. Under the lease accounting standard, Deloitte says companies could configure...

Nest Update Will Make Google’s Smart Home Work With Matter

Matter will unify all your Google Nest devices and compatible accessories under one roof. Image: GoogleGoogle is going all in with Matter, the new smart home standard the company has backed alongside Amazon, Apple, and other gadget makers, starting with its Nest devices.Nest devices that already have Google’s Thread technology built in, including Nest Wifi, Nest Hub Max and the second-gen Nest Hub, will act as Matter connection points, similar to a mesh network. Other Google Nest devices, including older Nest displays and speakers, will be automatically updated to control Matter devices. And the new Nest Thermostat will receive an update to become compatible with the Matter protocol.Android will also have built-in support for Matter so that you can quickly set up devices and link up any compatible Android apps. You can then control Matter...

Argonne’s Margaret Butler Fellowship Offers Opportunity to Work on Exascale Computing Applications

Argonnes Margaret Butler Fellowship Offers Opportunity to Work on Exascale
May 10, 2021 — As a PhD student at Oklahoma State University, Romit Maulik was brimming with ideas on how supercomputers could advance his computational physics research, but he lacked the resources to put his plans into action. That all changed in 2019, when he joined the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) as the recipient of its Margaret Butler Fellowship in Computational Science. “On paper, you can write out ideas, but to execute them, you often need help from experts,” says Maulik. ​“Since joining the ALCF, I have been able to take simple problems in my thesis and scale them up to much larger ones.” The ALCF, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory, is now granting the same opportunity to a new class of postdoctoral researchers through an open call for...

Loft Orbital to work with US Space Force on satellite ‘Edge computing’ capabilities

Loft Orbital Edge.2e16d0ba.fill 1200x630
Loft Orbital is working to develop a processor that can provide on-board Edge computing capabilities to military satellites in orbit.The California-based company has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract by the Space Force’s AFWERX program. The contract will provide funding to support development of a ‘high-performance, reprogrammable onboard Edge computing environment.’The onboard processor Loft Orbital is working on will support customer and third party “massless payloads” onboard; providing an environment to host applications for applications requiring Edge computing such as sensor data processing, mission autonomy, satellite self-protection, telemetry data processing. The company is also working to develop a machine learning software package to autonomously detect, identify and mitigate cyber...

Future Of Work: How 5G And Edge Computing Will Revolutionise The Workplace Experience

Alex Future of Work Template Articles 5 1
5G and edge computing are poised to change the way workspaces process data. 5G and edge computing are poised to change the way workspaces process data. Both technologies address the latency issues many workspaces face. Spaces can also introduce new ways of working, providing a competitive edge.  The IoT is getting an upgrade. While people are left wondering why they need a smart toilet in the first place, 5G networks and edge computing will introduce a new era of gadgets and applications for savvy workspaces — ones that your members actually want to use.  What is edge computing?  Edge computing is essentially computing that’s done at the edge of a network. In other words, computing that’s done at or very near to the source of the data. This massively reduces the response times — or latency — of your web...
