A tech company showcased an AI-assisted diagnostic software for diabetic retinopathy. The system utilises AI to analyse diabetic patients’ eye images and showed an accuracy close to that of an ophthalmologist with a referral accuracy of 93%. This technology assists doctors in diagnosing patients in the early stages and outputs a recommendation on whether the patient should be referred to further care within 3 to 5 seconds.

A medtech company brought smart medicare solutions to usher the world into an age of Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) healthcare. Their Care Recipient Monitor utilises time of flight technology, combined with IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) and AI image computing algorithms. This allows easy monitoring of patients’ daily activities and alerts healthcare personnel immediately whenever a patient requires urgent attention.

Regarding improving customer service, an AI cloud can detect user intentions and has the ability to actively respond with natural semantic dialogue. This includes typos correction, synonym recognition, user prompts and other functions. With the integrated design of all channels, users can use communication platforms to interact in real-time without changing their habits.

In order to foster an interactive learning community and enhance students’ experience in this era of remote learning, AI technology drives two auto-tracking modes including “presenter tracking” or “zone tracking” with no need for a camera operator. With this feature, the teacher is always kept in camera view regardless of any other noise interference.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, Taiwan’s Minister of Science and Technology said that the global pandemic is accelerating digital transformation. The pandemic poses both challenges and opportunities to rethink technology development and supply chain management. Thanks to public and private efforts over the past year, Taiwan has largely withstood the ravages of COVID-19.

Taiwan has shown its skills and expertise in public health and digital technology. With the belief that ‘Taiwan can help’, the government has been sharing resources and pandemic experiences with international partners. Many foreigners get to know about Taiwan in the process. The pandemic poses a challenge, but also creates an opportunity for Taiwan to highlight outstanding tech professionals and industry chains.

In the post-pandemic world, Taiwan will focus on six key industries: security, precision healthcare, digital transformation, semiconductors, space and 5G/6G Internet infrastructure. Taiwan has focused a lot on digital policies and, in the next few years, such as blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). Everything will be connected and everything will revolve around digital technologies. Due to the pandemic, Taiwan must speed up to move forward in the digital transformation process even faster.
