The Technology 202: TikTok’s future is uncertain as backlash mounts in Washington

derry wae

Trump, who previously pushed for a full sale of the TikTok service to an American company and threatened to otherwise ban the service, added that he expects to be briefed today on the proposal to make Oracle TikTok’s “trusted technology partner.”

“It has to be 100 percent as far as national security is concerned, and no, I’m not prepared to sign off on anything,” Trump said. “I have to see the deal.” 

The proximity to Nov. 3 makes it a toss-up whether Trump will seek a tough line on China – or compromise and call it a win. 

The key question is whether the deal proposed earlier this week to outsource data management to Oracle would do enough to address national security concerns that ByteDance could share Americans’ data with the Chinese government. 

Top administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have raised concerns about such an arrangement, according

What is the Future of Unified Communications?

The Unified Communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) sector has evolved rapidly in recent years. UCaaS has taken the business world by storm, and there’s no sign yet of a let-up in momentum with the shift to managing remote teams. Transparency Market Research predicts the UC market will be worth $79.3 billion by 2024.

It’s fair to assume that by 2024 UC solutions will be very different from those we see today. What, though, are the trends that will shape the sector in the new decade? While there’s no way to know for sure, the following look set to have a significant impact on the future of UCaaS:

  • Increased influence of AI for smart UC
  • Continued decline of traditional hardware and systems
  • Even more intelligent conferencing & meeting features
  • More influence of open platform processes
  • SD-WAN to become an undisputed standard

What The Future Of Manufacturing Could Look Like With AR/VR

VP of manufacturing, technology and innovation at Jabil. Over 20 years of experience helping global teams deploy cutting-edge manufacturing.

For the past five years, excluding the last five months, I have worked at a high-tech lab co-located in a Silicon Valley innovation center. Going to work was an opportunity to be fully immersed in a continuous learning environment with cutting-edge technologies and some of the best minds in engineering, science and manufacturing. Until, of course, the day we shifted to a work-from-home model.

Overnight, we were separated from each other as well as our vital lab hardware, software and tools. Yet we still are developing dozens of critical manufacturing processes, many of which have been transferred, deployed and audited in factories and facilities all over the world. How did we move on despite the pandemic? To ensure seamless collaboration and accelerate innovation, we collectively reached for our augmented

The importance of cloud communications to business continuity and a strategic future

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted a lack of business continuity planning across enterprises. Recent research shows 51 per cent of organisations globally did not have a business continuity plan in place to handle emergencies and disasters at the time when COVID-19 first affected operations.

In Australia, a federal government report found the three most commonly-reported impacts of COVID-19 from businesses were a lower demand for goods and services (67 per cent), cash flow issues (37 per cent), and having to change business practices (33 per cent).

Remote work is a key solution that has allowed some organisations to continue operating after lockdowns and distancing requirements came into effect. When COVID-19 first struck, 10-20 per cent of Australian workers had the option to do at least some of their work remotely, according to a report from The Australia Institute. However, it found “about 30 per cent of the Australian workforce could

Scientists of the School of Natural Sciences of Far Eastern Federal University (SNS FEFU) with colleagues from Russia, South Korea, and Australia suggest the breaking new ground approach to manage spin-electronic properties and functionality of the thin-film magnetic nanosystems. The method is important for the development of a new generation of tiny electronics (spin-orbitronics) and superfast high-capacity computer memory. A related article appears in NPG Asia Materials.

Scientists from the SNS FEFU Laboratory for Thin Film Technologies propose to control the functionality of a magnetic nanosystem through the surface roughness of a magnetic film sandwiched between heavy metal and a capping layer.
Modulating the roughness amplitude on the bottom and top surfaces (interfaces) of the magnetic film in the range of less than a nanometer, which is about the size of atoms, the researchers have maximized useful spin-electron
