[Media Briefing][The Korea Times] World's First Power-generating Yarn Developed

A group of scientists led by Hanyang University Professor Kim Seon-jeong have developed yarn that can produce electricity through contraction and relaxation- a world first - according to the Ministry of Science and ICT, Thursday. Naming the invention the "twistron yarn," the research team expect it can be used for electronics products such as wearable devices, smartphones and drones that will be able to operate for longer without an additional power supply. Kim said the ultimate goal is to further improve the efficiency of the twistron yarn's power generating capability and to make it mass-producible at a low cost. The researchers said they could turn on a small light-emitting diode bulb using only 19.5 milligrams of twistron yarn. ▲ August 25th <The Korea Times> Page 1 ▲ August 25th <The Korea Times> Page 2

[Media Briefing][Korea Joongang Daily] Smarter Robots Might not Mean Fewer Jobs

It's no wonder people believe the advent of smart factories could mean the loss of jobs. A 2015 report by Boston Consulting Group about the effect of advanced factory technology estimates "a greater use of robotics and computerization will reduce the number of jobs in assembly and production by approximately 610,000." However, the consulting firm also noted that these job losses "will be more than offset by the creation of approximately 960,000 new jobs." The new jobs, according to the firm, will be created from increased demand for highly-skilled workers in information technology, analytics and research and development, as well as newly created employment opportunities. As job demands are set to differ in the future, universities are crafting measures to help students adjust. The ERICA Campus of Hanyang University in Gyeonggi is working with LS Industrial Systems to educate students in core technologies related to smart factories including user interface design for factory machines. ▲ August 7th <Korea Joongang Daily> Page 5
