Feb 07, 2017 Business & Finance Comments Off on Tsai oversees opening of Smart Machinery Promotion Office
President Tsai Ing-wen said Tuesday that the opening of the Smart Machinery Promotion Office is a milestone on Taiwan's entry into the Industry 4.0 era of smart manufacturing.
The term comes from the German government's widely imitated policy of introducing computer technology to manufacturing, including the Internet of Things and cloud computing.
The president said the first mission of the office will be to build on cooperation between industry and academia to raise new networks of professional talent. She said she hopes students will be introduced earlier to cutting edge smart manufacturing technology and the latest market trends. Another point will be to enable people already in the workforce chances to go back to study and update their expertise.
Tsai said the office's second mission will be to bring together the resources of government, research institutions and corporations. She said she hoped this would speed up the process of manufacturing innovation.
The president singled out aerospace, biomedicine and semiconductors as sectors that could help make Taiwan more competitive with the application of smart technology.
