MOST AI Innovation Research Program in Taiwan
In order to promote the development of AI technologies and attract top AI professionals to work in Taiwan, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) has initiated an AI innovation research program. The primary objective of the program is to establish an eco-system in Taiwan so that professionals and start-ups can develop and share AI technologies more easily and smoothly. The AI innovation program has successfully launched four AI centers named MOST Joint Research Center for AI Technology and All Vista Healthcare (AINTU), AI for Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Research Center (AIMS), Pervasive AI Research (PAIR) Labs, and MOST AI Biomedical Research Center (AIBMRC) at National Taiwan University, National Tsing Hua University, National Chiao Tung University, and National Cheng Kung University, respectively. These four research centers have assembled 79 research teams including more than 600 professors, experts, and researchers. The MOST expects that the four AI centers can become the leaders in a number of key areas, such as smart agriculture, smart factories, AI biomedical research, and AI manufacturing. This presentation will showcase research highlights among four centers and bring research opportunities to attendees of Duke.
