Taiwan Promotes Science and Technology Application for Indigenous Communities

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Ren-Ai Township Office in Nantou County held the “Initiation Ceremony of the Application Project of Scientific Research Achievements in Indigenous Fields”, announcing that they will invest the technical resources of the Industrial Technology Research Institute and the Institute for Information Industry and introduce the results of scientific and technological projects into the daily lives of indigenous citizens.

The projects have the dual-core of AgriFood and Travel and Transportation, which will establish demonstration fields in Ren-Ai Township, Nantou County, and cooperate with local businesses to solve the needs of the indigenous towns by various technologies.

In terms of AgriFood technologies, the Precision Drip Irrigation System is used in conjunction with environmental sensing, smart monitoring and other technologies to increase the yield of crops; as for the Travel and Transportation technologies, Real-time Mass Transportation Information System and Smart Transportation Car Dispatching Service system are built to improve local transportation services and increase the population of the indigenous hometowns.

Due to environmental constraints, insufficient transportation resources, and limited agricultural labour force, the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) intends to focus on sustainability” and “proliferation, using existing scientific and professional achievements and combining them with local resources to reduce the burden on R&D of the domestic businesses and assist in industrial transformation. It is expected that the assistance could boost the economy of indigenous hometowns and bring the youth back home for employment.

Taiwan encourages the use of local cultural materials, innovative technologies, visualisation techniques, and new media characteristics to produce creative works that are native; improves the ability to self-produce audio and video materials; and transforms technology, marketing and business models to develop innovative convergent services, thus expanding the application value of intellectual property through diverse applications.

Taiwan also promotes the installation of wireless broadband in indigenous areas to increase the overall and indigenous coverage of wireless broadband in Taiwan; safeguards the rights to watch digital wireless TV for indigenous peoples and families living in rural areas and improves the signal quality and stability of TV shows.

Taiwan also provides a model for small and micro indigenous enterprises to strengthen their product features and innovative services to drive the overall transformation of local enterprises; creates the content of indigenous cultures and the ethnic identity of indigenous peoples and infuse them into the wisdom and S&T education of indigenous peoples, and fully implements the essence of digital equality and impartial information sharing among indigenous peoples.

Taking the intellectual property rights of content indigenous to Taiwan as a core concern, Taiwan also combines cultural art performances and exhibitions with 5G network technologies and augmented/virtual reality, 8k displays, and other smart display devices to create story content native to Taiwan, builds an immersive smart museum with virtually and physically integrated content applications, and produces novel performance content. The government hopes to address the digital transformation needs of the culture industry, develop new sites and new operating models for cultural technologies, promote the innovation and upgrading of the culture industry, and guide a paradigm shift for demonstration sites.

As the digital market and e-commerce are expanding, Taiwan embraces digital technology in education and culture. As reported by OpenGov Asia, under the “National Digital Archives Program” and the “National Science and Technology Program for e-Learning”, various kinds of archives are kept in Academia Sinica, the National Palace Museum, National Taiwan University and many other public and private cultural institutions in Taiwan have been digitised. These two Taiwanese programs have successfully integrated the development of different fields in science, humanities, economy, and technology.
