(Taipei News) The "International Quantum Technologies Forum 2023" hosted by the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and implemented by the Photonics Industry & Technology Development Association (PIDA) was held on May 31 in Taipei. This forum focused on quantum technology development application and international cooperation opportunity.
Jeff Lin, General Director,Industry, Science and Technology International Strategy Center;”ISTI”, ITRI make an opening introduction, Describe the importance of quantum technology in Today's world. Keynote Speech by Nancy Liu, a researcher in the Electronics and Systems Research Group of ISTI, ITRI gave a lecture on "The Ecosystem, Services, Investment, and Opportunities of Quantum Computing in Taiwan". Jeff Lin said, under the Sino-US trade war, the science and technology war has become the next main battlefield of the global industry. Especially in the face of economic revitalization and digital transformation after the COVID-19 epidemic, the development of quantum technology has become one of the primary goals of various countries.the development of quantum technology has become one of the primary goals of various countries. At present, 16 countries in the world have listed quantum technology as a national development strategy plan, and many countries have set their own development of quantum computers and quantum-integrated space communication networks as their main goals.
Huai-jia Luo, CEO of PIDA, said that in terms of quantum technology, it is listed as an important development technology in the United States and China. Taiwanese electronics giant Hon Hai and many information and communication manufacturers, as well as production and research units, will participate in this kind of activities every time, representing everyone’s support for this issue. Very concerned. How to further increase the strength of scientific and technological research and the friendly environment, the further development of quantum technology is particularly important. I think this is an opportunity for Taiwan, and I hope everyone will work together to seize the business opportunity. Taiwan is a technology center for components. Servers account for 90% of the world. It is an important place for the integrated production of global ICT products. Quantum technology can develop better on this good foundation.
Speakers come from all over the world, there are Finland、Sweden、Denmark、UK、Israel and Australia. The activity ended successfully amidst the enthusiastic questions from the participants.
