[Reporter Wu Baixuan/Taipei Report] In the face of ChatGPT, the National Science Council announced today (28th) the establishment of the Center of Excellence for Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a platform for cross-ministerial integration and international cooperation. The industry should quickly form an AI ecosystem , launched AI cloud service applications to enter the international market; Wu Zhengzhong, chairman of the National Science Council, emphasized that in addition to the technology industry, AI is more important than the rule of law, and Taiwan can rank among the best in the world if it stabilizes.

Wu Zhengzhong, chairman of the National Science and Technology Council, said that in 2017, striving for a forward-looking fund of 5 billion yuan to promote the "AI Innovation Research Center" is Taiwan's "AI first year".

Lu Chaoqun, president of the Taiwan Artificial Intelligence Chip Alliance, said that Taiwan's semiconductor industry has gone through 30 years, and it is very important to do things down-to-earth. The model algorithm grows by an average of 240 times every 2 years, and the deep learning is 4,000 times every 2 years. I agree that software and hardware must be integrated at this time, and I also advocate that Taiwan must share innovations with humans and machines in order to reach new heights.

Shen Baiyan, chairman of the Information Software Association, said that Taiwan is already a chip power, but how to become a digital power requires collective wisdom. ChatGPT has made generative AI explode, driving the innovation of applications and system tools, and narrowing the gap in knowledge, but it is accompanied by information accuracy. Suggestions Taiwan builds a people-oriented and reliable AI governance system and a reliable verification mechanism.

The core engine is mainly used as a basic model, which can be followed Applied to government departments or financial holdings to assist in "problem answering"; Xu Yongzhen, vice president convener and director of the Smart Networking Innovation Research Center of National Taiwan University, added that the basic model of international manufacturers "is not capable of traditional Chinese", and we will strengthen it. Taiwan version engine In terms of application, it is necessary to make the data trustworthy and in line with Taiwan's values, and the follow-up will be public-private cooperation.
