Nvidia has committed itself to training more than 5,000 people in AI deep learning in Taiwan in three years, according to the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB)
Nvidia made the commitment while holding its AI Strategy Summit in Taipei, jointly with IDB under Ministry of Economic Affairs on June 12.
The summit focused on development of AI technology for application to Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing, edge computing and smart machinery. It also featured speakers from Siliconware Precision Industries (SPIL), Advantech, Adlink Technology, Inventec, Wistron and AU Optronics (AUO) about their companies' use of AI technology in defect inspection, predicative maintenance, smart manufacturing and automatic machine control.
IDB, in a bid to cultivate AI experts and boost industrial application of AI technology, has set up AIGO, a platform for enterprises to present problems and AI experts or teams to develop corresponding AI solutions, according to IDB director general Leu Jang-hwa.
AI is key to Taiwan-based enterprises' upgrading via transformation to cope with global competition, especially manufacturers, said Nvidia global vice president and Taiwan general manager Eunice Chiu.
