  • Intelligent Manufacturing, AI TAIWAN : Artificial Intelligence for Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Research Center, AIMS, MOST.



  Facing the challenges and opportunities brought by artificial intelligence technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) promoted a five-year project of "AI Innovation Research Centers", which established four AI Innovation Centers in top four universities: National Taiwan University (NTU), National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) and National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). Among them, Artificial Intelligence for Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Research Center (AIMS) located at NTHU focuses on intelligent manufacturing. The goal of AIMS is to develop into a world-class AI research center that takes advantage of best practices in Taiwan manufacturing as a niche and contributes to Taiwan's industries. Under the mission of promoting AI industrialization and industrial implementation in AI, AIMS is dedicated to Taiwan's industrial upgrade, transformation and the diversified development of the entire industrial ecosystem.


The mission of AIMS are:

  • Integrate the strengths of AIMS project teams to create the synergy of interdisciplinary collaborations and vertical integrations of different focused research areas to enable innovations.

  • Collect manufacturing big data and construct databases as the platform to foster empirical research and facilitate hands-on training to cultivate AI talents, and organize big data and AI competitions for intelligent manufacturing.

  • Incubate startups via spin-off of AIMS project teams and bridge spin-in to empower analytics functions of Taiwan manufacturers to enhance their competence.

  • Host international conferences and joint research program with leading research institutes worldwide to elevate global impact of Taiwan for intelligent manufacturing

  • Develop AI-empowered solutions for intelligent manufacturing to support Taiwanese companies as well as export to emerging countries.
