  • AI applied on biotechnology drives the life sciences industry improvements: MOST AI Biomedical Research Center
MOST AI Biomedical Research Center at NCKU, supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) is established on Feb. 12, 2018.
 
The center, MOST AI Biomedical Research Center at NCKU, is supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) with fourteen multi-year biomedical AI research projects. It was established on Feb. 12, 2018 in Tainan and covers four major fields: smart medicine, smart healthcare, smart biotechnology and ethics & humanities. As the only MOST-supported center situated in Central and Southern Taiwan, it is strongly endorsed by National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) along with many other important universities, hospitals, and research institutes in this area. Long-term research collaborations of these teams have been redirected towards emerging new AI technologies with biomedical and biotechnological researches.
 
Under the leadership of the principal investigator Dr. Yung-Nien Sun and Dr. Chung-Hsien Wu and the CEO of Dr. Yu-Hsien Chiu, project teams are rapidly developing biological and biomedical AI application techniques and contributing to the big databank for biomedical imaging and medical records. The center strives to integrate multiple disciplines in biomedical science and AI to provide solid foundations and cutting-edge technologies for medicine and biology. Through interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international cooperation, the center aims at developing innovative AI solutions and cultivating top AI personnel for the biomedical industries. Center members are encouraged to obtain hands-on experience and gain foreign exposure by joining visits, studies, and cooperation programs with world-renowned scientists, laboratories and institutions. Assistance with patent planning, clinical validation and certification is also provided. It is their ultimate goal to link the research outcomes to enterprises and promote AI solutions to the market systems for meeting the unmet needs of biomedical societies.
 
In the past year, GLORIA NCKU has closely interacted with the AI ​​Biomedical Innovation Research Center. In addition to co-hosting forums and conferences, the AI ​​Center research teams are often invited to join the exhibitions and connect to industries. In 2019 CES, one of the world's top tech exhibitions, Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE) Professor Jung-Hsien Chiang showed a domestic service robot that boasts AI and advanced sensing abilities. In the future, the robot can also be customized to provide early childhood education and other services. Moreover, a wearable device created by NCKU CSIE Professor Sheng-Fu Liang could be used to monitor and improve one’s sleep quality with its Brain Mind Welfare system. The system comprises of real-time brainwave analysis, wireless communication and noise suppression, whose neuro-feedback can hence lead to long-term improvement and further treatment.
 
In order to meet the future of the global AI era, GLORIA NCKU will keep to cooperate with the AI ​​Center to jointly link the cutting-edge technology of Taiwan AI biomedical technology to worldwide industries, so that Taiwan would play a vital role in the improvement of global life sciences industry.
