Taiwan-based TUL, specializing in AMD graphics cards, has announced a move to team up with National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) and regtech (regulation & technology) specialist venture platform QRC Japan to jointly develop blockchain and IoT technologies and applications and cultivate blochain talent.
TUL president Ted Chen said Taiwan's IT industry boasts strong hardware manufacturing prowess and excellent R&D talent, and the integration of blockchain and IoT involves unlimited application potentials and technological coverage, providing the best turning point for Taiwan industries to carry out digital transformation in the big data era.
Chen continued that as a top science and tech academy in Taiwan, NTUST has been dedicated to cultivating high-end tech engineering and management talent, having amassed abundant experiences in handling research projects in cooperation with top international tech colleges and enterprises. QRC Japan, Chen added, has been well experienced in developing blockchain technologies, offering blockchain training programs and providing regulatory advices.
Chen stressed that through cooperating with NTUST and QRC, TUL hopes to effectively nurture blockchain-related talent, develop blokchain applications to image processing, biomedical and AI high-performance computing fields, and build connections with international blockchain stages.
As crypto mining graphic cards will no longer serve as a main growth driver, TUL now focuses more on such product lines as high-end gaming graphic cards, industrial-control graphic cards, SoC motherboards and FPGA solutions, with its customized industrial-control graphic cards well adopted by major IPC makers, according to Chen.
