Opportunity & Strength

Opportunity:

  1. To grasp the opportunity of AI development, the government announces that year 2017 is the first year of AI in Taiwan and release the “R&D Strategy of AI” in August. In 2018, the government also promotes “4-years Taiwan AI Development Plans” to full active industrialization of AI. As a result, uses of industrialized AI and AI industries will be keys to AI development in Taiwan.
  2. AI is walk into business application from laboratory step by step, such as retailing, financial services, bio-tech & medical treatment, auto-pilot, robots and smart living. Cross-domain experts like data scientist, algorithms and robotic engineer are the key person of AI development, who are desperately needed by the human resource market. The graduates of Physics, Psychology and Financial departments are rise to data scientist with million paid per year recently.
  3. With emphasizing combination of theories and practice, the MIS of NCHU set ‘Artificial Intelligence & Data Science’ and ‘Information Management & Information Security’ as two major domains, then branch ‘Computer Vision & Digital Image Processing’, ‘Natural Language Processing’, ‘Big Data Analysis’, ‘Blockchain’, ‘Information Security’ and ‘Information Management’ as subdomains. All above domains are necessary techniques in development of AI industries.
  4. Neighbor with Taichung Industrial Park, Central Taiwan Science Park, The Taichung City Precision Machinery Innovation Technology Park and The Nantou Zhongxing New Village Advanced Technology Park, talented people with techniques of information management and technology are needed desperately.

Strength:

  1. National Chung Hsing University is the only one selected to developed as national first class university and acquired top research center program (50 billion for 5 years) in central Taiwan.
