Apr 14, 2022 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

The Korean Institute of Ocean Science and Technology is looking into developing data centers underwater. The South Korean government is funding the project to allow KIOST to develop a submarine working and living space for people. The project will cost up to 37.3 billion won ($30.8 million). In addition, according to the Mayor of Ulsan, where the development will take effect, the project will see KIOST explore high-efficiency underwater data centers.

The South Korean Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries is backing the project, which will include a habitable space 30m under the sea. Up to five people will be able to work and live there continuously for 30 days.
