Special Edition on Sustainable Society – Wiwynn Donates to High Performance Computing Center of National Chiao Tung University Tainan Campus to Reinforce Industrial- Academia Collaboration
Jointly with two Taiwanese companies, Wiwynn donated to the Tainan Campus of Nation-al Chiao Tung University the High Performance Computing Center (HPC Center) worth NT$ 60 million for use in teaching and research by the College of Artificial Intelligence and Green Energy and the College of Photonics. The Company attended the donation ceremony at the Tainan Campus of National Chiao Tung University on the afternoon of November 18, 2019. The industry and the academia work together to contribute to the development of artificial intelligence technology in Taiwan.
The President and CEO of Wiwynn, Ms. Emily Hong indicated that: “Wiwynn continues to invest and develop in the cloud data center industry and constantly work with the academic community to cultivate advanced technology development. Personally I am honored to be able to work with National Chiao Tung University. The high performance computing server designed for artificial intelligence and advanced computing helps with the research and development of the National Chiao Tung University in the AI field and supports related teach-ing in order to develop outstanding talent and to enhance the overall industrial technical capabilities. In the future, Wiwynn will continue to invest in Tainan by getting involved in more industry-academia collaboration projects. Combining the advanced laboratory of Wiwynn’s Tainan Branch and the abundant academia-industry-research institutions such as the National Chiao Tung University in Tainan, we can create the innovation center that covers R&D, manufacturing, and product maintenance in Tainan.”
Acting President Sin-Horng Chen of National Chiao Tung University indicated that “The National Chiao Tung University has a solid foundation in academic research in the field of AI. The College of Artificial Intelligence and Green Energy was set up on the Tainan cam-pus with consolidation of shred innovation, development, and practical research as its core belief. I would like to thank the industry and alumni for closely following on and generously supporting the construction of the HPC Center, which will not only help with the development of the Tainan campus but also significantly enhance the overall competitive advantages of the National Chiao Tung University.”
