- The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced on Monday that its researchers have developed the first computer that can save data without power, as a way of conserving electric power consumption.
- Led by electrical engineering professor Jung Myoung-soo, a research team created the Lightweight Persistence Centric System, also known as Light PC.
- KAIST stated that rather than using the currently more common dynamic random-access memory chip, which loses data when a computer shuts down, the Light PC uses persistent memory processors which do not require a rebooting process.
- With Light PC, computers can have eight times more memory and hold over four times more applications and programs.
- Jung and his research team will present the Light PC at the International Symposium on Computer Architecture in New York in June.
