Taiwan’s Rapidly Developing Tech Landscape

Conceptual image about how a smartphone open a door to worldwide information sharing.

Taiwan’s digital landscape is on the rise. Key technologies like 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart devices are finding broader and more comprehensive use across the nation. More recently, the discussion has been the adoptions of these technologies in the context of the post-pandemic era in Taiwan.

The evolution of Artificial Intelligence of things (AIoT), Machine Learning and  5G has opened up new application fields across various sectors. Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud and IoT development has reached new heights. In this IoE era, organisations and companies are aggressively positioning themselves to exploit opportunities and advantages these technologies afford.

The Bureau of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) are eager to generate wider dialogue on future technology trends. Their COMPUTEX Forum will facilitate discussion on future technology trends for global information and communications technology (ICT) and the startup scene with a complete supply chain and IoT ecosystems.

The forum will try to provide answers on what technology in the future will look like. Quantum computers and high-performance computing open up a new era of quantum and become the core role of data analysis; smart transportation is developing rapidly, and smart cities where self-driving cars can travel are already in place. AI-enabled solutions have seen exponential growth as they have linked crucial sectors like healthcare and transportation during COVID-19. This widespread adoption of AI tools increased awareness of cybersecurity, causing major companies to rethink this as a priority. The promising applications of intelligent transportation systems, autonomous vehicles and smart cities will also feature prominently.

Taiwan has been at the forefront of technological innovation as the country proves its digital prowess by winning two awards for innovative new products and services. As reported by OpenGov Asia, Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) collected two awards under the support of the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA). With these accolades, ITRI has delivered again with MetabColor as well as the AI-Based High-Density Shuttle Rack Delivery System.

The ITRI is a government-funded applied technology research institute with more than 6,000 employees. ITRI’s AI-Based High-Density Shuttle Rack Service System wins a gold medal in the Innovative Services, AI Applications category. The institute also took home a silver award for its MetabColor microbial textile dyes produced via a non-toxic, environmentally friendly and renewable process.

The Director-General of  DoIT stated that it was no easy thing that ITRI’s AI technology won a gold medal in the Innovative Services, AI Applications category. The automated vertical warehousing system is developed for space-starved cities and the rack can be 14 stories high, saving at least twice as much space storage. Moreover, ITRI has been working with several companies to develop AI technology. The AI-based warehousing system optimises logistics efficiency to meet the increasing needs of e-commerce, cutting shipping time by 60% and helping to increase logistics performance during peak season.

The silver winner, MetabColor, uses modified microbes and the fermentation, separation, and purification processes to create natural dyes that are more environmentally friendly than chemical dyes. ITRI has been cooperating with leaders in textile manufacturing and speciality chemicals on the preliminary verification of the technology.

ITRI President also stated that the honour demonstrates that the institute’s technological vision aligns with top global trends. ITRI will continue collaborating with industry leaders to offer efficient solutions aimed at minimising environmental impact while ensuring Taiwan is an integral part of green global supply chains. He also pointed out that the Edison Awards focus on the “real-world applications” of innovative R&D results. Winning two awards is a big achievement for their R&D teams.
