Digizen Taiwan cooperated with the Institute for Information Industry (III), National National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to hold an online forum entitled “Taiwan’s Golden Decade,” in August.
The forum invited 100 guests from industries that were considered “role models” or “potential candidates,” and provided a proof of concept for ideas related to a field of their own choosing. The proofs of concept were then reviewed by NYCU’s research team and 150 leading start-ups, with the goal to assess and grasp Taiwan’s economic possibilities and future.
The forum covered topics such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, 5G technology, green energy, telemedicine, and automated driving. It took place on Aug. 28.
At forum, Foxconn MIH Consortium (MIH) CEO Jack Cheng said electric vehicles (EV) will become not only a mode of transportation within the next 10 years, but a secondary living space that drives itself automatically, with reduced carbon dioxide emissions. He added that Taiwan must master key chip-manufacturing technologies and work with domestic and international EV circles to earn a place within the global EV industry.
As cybersecurity will become an everyday issue in the next decade, ACSI's Maverick Shih said Taiwan must seize the opportunity provided by operational technology, which entails “built-in chip information security capabilities, IOT device inspection and monitoring services, and information security information platforms.” Taiwan must rise above the idea of the “national team” and set its eyes on the international level to assemble a “world team” by attracting elites around the world, according to Shih.
