San Francisco, June two (CNA) Below the initiative of Taiwan’s National Science and Technologies Council (NSTC), the Taiwan Science amd Technologies Hub, positioned at Stanford University, opened Friday.
The NSTC launched a system in January to make a Taiwan-U.S. technologies investigation platform by integrating inter-ministerial sources in the Cabinet to strengthen the country’s technologies capabilities and deciding on Stanford University as a companion for cooperation in preparation for the opening of the Taiwan Science and Technologies Hub.
Addressing the opening ceremony, Wu Tsung-tsong (吳政忠), head of the NSTC, mentioned as the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated a international shortage in semiconductors, Taiwan played a essential part in stabilizing the international IC provide chain.
Wu mentioned cooperation in semiconductor manufacturing and style amongst Taiwan and the U.S. was anticipated to improve financial safety worldwide, in specific in the existing booming generative artificial intelligence era.
Meanwhile, Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne mentioned he anticipated the hub to serve as a bridge amongst Taiwan and the San Francisco Bay Location in technologies resource integration.
Jennifer Widom, dean of the College of Engineering at Stanford, mentioned Morris Chang (張忠謀), founder of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford in 1964, and Nvidia Corp. CEO Jensen Huang (黃仁勳) and Yahoo Founder Jerry Yang (楊致遠), each of who had been born in Taiwan, also graduated from Stanford.
Widom added that the Taiwan Science and Technologies Hub would permit such a talent list to develop.
On the opening day, the hub also held an inaugural technologies conference with various heavyweights from the University of California, Berkeley, attending and delivering keynote speeches on semiconductors, carbon emission reductions and digital healthcare care.
Amongst these UC Berkeley scholars, Tsu-Jae King Liu (劉金智潔), dean of the College of Engineering, was born to parents who came from Taiwan, and Michael Lu (呂淳祺), dean of College of Public Wellness, migrated from Taiwan to the United States when he was five years old.
Wu expressed his gratitude to Stanford and UC Berkeley for their efforts in cultivating tech talent for the globe and Taiwan.
According to Wu, although Chang graduated from Stanford, TSMC Chairman Mark Liu received his doctorate in electrical engineering and personal computer science from UC Berkeley.
Wu mentioned each Chang and Liu had created tremendous contributions to Taiwan’s semiconductor technologies.
