South Korean researchers develop first-ever computer that can save data without power

South Korea first computer
  • 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.

A research team at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea announced on Monday that they have developed the first computer that can save data without the use of a power supply.

Led by KAIST electrical engineering professor Jung Myoung-soo, the research team created the Lightweight Persistence Centric System, also known as Light PC, reported The Korea Herald. The system can retain data even while a computer is turned off.

anti asian hate
  • New York saw the highest number of anti-Asian hate crimes in 2021, according to data from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism in California State University, San Bernardino.
  • Los Angeles surpassed other major U. S. cities in terms of overall hate crimes last year.
  • Data on anti-Asian incidents may not be representative of the whole picture, since a vast number of cases are believed to be underreported.

Anti-Asian hate crimes took a turn for the worse during the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new data provided to NextShark.

The figures, part of an upcoming report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism in California State University, San Bernardino, show that hate crimes targeting the Asian American community increased by 342% across eight major cities in 2021 compared to figures from the previous year.

New York Gov. Hochul urged to pass bill requiring non-monolithic AAPI demographic data

Chinese American Planning Council

The Chinese American Planning Council is calling on N.Y. Gov. Kathy Hochul to sign legislation that would require the collection of better demographic data about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
