Microsoft Taiwan has established a 5G Foresight Team with local partners to build a complete 5G ecosystem in the country and drive digital transformation by encouraging firms to capitalise on the opportunities provided by 5G and artificial intelligence.
The group was established at the Taiwan Smart Manufacturing Sustainable Innovation Forum where Microsoft invited local partners Chunghwa Telecom, Inventec Group, Pegatron Technology, Huadian Network and Shenbo Communication,.
“Taiwan has a strong 5G advantage, with complete technological capabilities and a solid foundation to support the global supply chain,” said Bian Zhixiang, general manager of Microsoft Taiwan. “In the face of the AI wave, we see that many Taiwanese companies are actively transforming from manufacturing, semiconductors and retailing. With the Azure cloud platform as the core, Microsoft is cooperating with industry partners to jointly establish the 5G Foresight Team.”
