I hope it didn’t take too much of your time.
Right. Thank you very much.
What are the best areas for German and Taiwan to cooperate in AI?
Mainly you talk about all the strong points of Taiwan. What would you say is the weak point of Taiwan on AI?
Japan right now has a very new program for small children for learning AI related knowledge. Does Taiwan have similar program?
Again, can we talk about the question I started with? Where do you see Taiwan in 5 to 10 years as better off than right now, or is the competition getting too strong from other countries that Taiwan needs to fear...
What do you think about the idea that some kind of setup like a AI related technologies be taxedinstead of people? The more robots you have in a company, the more tax the company should pay.
You need to have money to solve problems. If AI is too open, what’s the income base of the companies who pay their employees or the income base of the country to pay for all the social benefits?
You talk about all the social benefits.
Every country has always the fear that too much information isiphoned off by somebody else.
You want to share information. How far do private companies like the big ones, TSMC, Foxconn, cooperate with you, are willing to share their information?
It´s on governments but it’s not comparable on enterprise side, right? Open data?
I saw that in theopen data index, Taiwan is on top.
You talked about the sandbox example. Taiwan, as well as Japan, are not very much known for being un bureaucratic.
If you put 100 in, how much would come out?
Which is a very good thing because this is a development everywhere.
A huge amount of money is put into start ups. In TSIthey told me this is very well financed.
Do you think with 5G there will be a huge step up to have even more difference?
When is your target of 5G being available?
This is even without 5G.
You already put this in the constitution that broadband’s a human right?
Would you say that now those AI entrepreneurs or digital people, they go more to Taiwan because it’s notexpensive to live?
What’s the catch?
What about German companies?
Tell me about talent. That’s probably now the main headache of all companies or countries that they don’t have enough talent. This AI fever is pretty huge. I know in Taiwan there’s a lot of very clever people and very mathematical and natural science oriented.
That’s why there’s a lot of start up initiatives in Taiwan going on.
What would you say is Taiwan’s unique contribution? If you compare it with US or China?It’s all data driven. Taiwan is small islands and not so many data available.
The fintech AI, so it’s already used?
You have to have access to all this data.
What about data protection? You were just talking about this student film thing?
At what stage will you put it into real use?
I know there’s some things going on, but what’s the vision on Taiwan? Where do you see Taiwan right now in the whole setup in the world, and what’s the vision for the next 5 or 10 years?
Then a long time, nothing. Then Japan, Korea. Taiwan is on nobody’s monitor.
How is Taiwan doing in terms of research and application of artificial intelligence. Of course, US, China, everybody thinks about those countries.
As I wrote, artificial intelligence is now on everybody’s mind, right?
