We also hope to cultivate the digital literacy of Kaohsiung students locally and improve the environment of information on campuses in order to enable excellent talent to take root locally with unrivaled international competitiveness.”

President of Microsoft Taiwan Sun Chi-kang commented, “Microsoft Taiwan has been investing in AI for over 20 years, and in addition to research and development Microsoft has also made efforts to introduce AI into the field of education. With the increasing diversity of AI applications, I hope to see AI with the capacity to assist instructors in teaching more creatively while also stimulating students’ imagination and motivation. At the same time, I anticipate that AI will be able to build market competitiveness required in the digital era and implement Microsoft's vision of cultivating Taiwan's AI talent while also cultivating digital citizens who are in line with international standards.”
