Core Strategic Industry Federated Learning Forum

Taiwan AI federated learning talk about the results of the future

March 30, 2021, in Taipei, Taiwan  In order to enable Taiwan to play a key role in the global AI industry, TAIFA today hosted the first “Joint Learning Forum on Core Strategic Industries” at the Taiwan University Hospital International Conference Center, following repeated reports of more accurate diagnostic outcomes through joint learning. And invited 29 industry officials to share research results and future planning, hoping to assist the top experts in various fields to join the joint learning, pool domain knowledge, create the most suitable for the use of AI models in various fields, and jointly promote the research and development of artificial intelligence in Taiwan to the international stage.

” Today is a memorable day for Taiwan because we think about how Taiwan’s artificial intelligence industry is developing from a national perspective,  President Ethan Tu said in his speech. In the digital economy era, digital data is oil, how to comply with gold, under the premise of protecting human rights and privacy, access to data for artificial intelligence training, is the issue of advanced countries. Federated learning uses a decentralized model where data is left in the original individual or organization, allowing AI modules to be trained in aithimide in each organization. This approach is also in line with the spirit of the GDPR, not only to obtain the consent of users, so that individuals and organizations of the right to information, remain in the individual and organization, so that everyone has more control over their own information. In the role of AI Labs, we focus on the basic capabilities of AI, and we need to work with experts from various industries and regulatory and effective enforcement units to promote joint learning in Taiwan, so that Taiwan’s artificial intelligence shines and glows around the world.


“Developing big data so that people can develop smart health care is a good model,” Former President of National Taiwan University, Academician Yuchi Yang said, leading the focus on “federated learning is the key to the development of core strategic industries.” As all institutions and health insurance bureaus have compliance issues to comply with the data, I think the federated learning model can help solve a funding problem by using a decentralized approach. We have been talking about the concept of joint learning and technology for some time, the most important thing at this stage is to start and go, quickly select a few models to develop first, tell others that we can use the simplest way, can be used in various fields.

Huang Xinxuan, deputy director of the Transport Research Institute of the Ministry of Transport, believes that the subject of transportation has great potential to be integrated into AI because of its structured, repetitive and data-intensive characteristics. 5G plus AIoT, the Ministry of Transport actively open the AI nerve center, through AI technology, we hope to anticipate the potential risks, prevention before they appear. Professor Liling Wang, former chairman of the Governing Council, said: “Because the financial industry has very strict regulations on personal asset management, and the data of each financial company is part of the range of data, the financial industry has a lot of big data and AI training. Big difficulties, but the joint learning model has brought answers. I believe that inclusive finance can be more realized. Personally, I also look forward to the combination of AI medical care, AI transportation and AI finance. For example, in insurance, transportation safety, and insurance Early warning.”

In the second discussion, the Chief Executive Officer of the Information Policy Council, Zhenghong Zhuo, presided over the topic of “Constructing high-quality joint learning services and development environment”. He believed that trust is very important in joint learning when all new technologies are introduced. The root cause is the issue of trust. In addition to technology, self-management, internal auditing, internal control, and external auditing are important in establishing a trustworthy organization and institution. The important norms for Taiwan’s next industry must be right from the beginning, and the mechanism must be established. Liao Zicen, chairman of Taiwan Digital Optical Communications, also shared that at present, Taichung has successfully put self-driving cars on the road. It is no longer an experimental sandbox, but has actually been on the road. Starting from the 2018 Huabo in Taichung, AI has been used for self-driving cars in transportation.


In the afternoon, when more in-depth discussions were held on medical treatment, urban and rural transportation and finance, the “medical field” attracted doctors and researchers from 9 hospitals. Lukas Nystr ö m, founder of cerefovea in Sweden, came in. He reminded us that we still need private federated learning for the model, hoping to establish cross agency and cross country cooperation through joint learning.

“Urban and rural areas and traffic fields” Lin Qinrong, vice mayor of Kaohsiung City, said that data is the driving force for the development of smart city. In the future, he will make good use of the security and privacy of 5g and aiot empirical open data to apply to the development of smart city in Kaohsiung. Yu Wanru, director of Taoyuan Information Bureau, shared the governance results of development data of smart city in Taoyuan. Because Taoyuan has a complete industrial supply chain and has many urban data, As well as the municipal governance platform based on development, the use of company data and privacy have become the focus of future development. Lin Yaping, executive director of smart city, also shared the joint learning experience of Taiwan Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, emphasizing the importance and necessity of data governance and privacy in the field of transportation (such as v2x).

Li Gang, member of the National Transportation Safety Committee, shared domestic and foreign cases of self driving transportation safety and the importance of joint learning in data privacy and governance to transportation safety. Xu Hongfeng, chairman of Fengrong passenger transport, shared the company’s self driving development experience to explain the importance of smart intersection and self driving system to the future development of the city.

In the group forum of “financial field”, Professor Xie Minghua of digital Financial Innovation Laboratory of Zhengda pointed out that the financial industry is facing new customers and great changes have taken place in the financial services provided. The supervision institutions are also facing more and more complex supervision objects and scope, and develop one and two-sided supervision technology (suptech) and legal compliance Technology (regtech) Now will be a good time. Prosecutor Li Bingxuan of Taiwan’s Xinbei district attorney’s office also said that financial institutions have reported more than 10000 suspicious transactions in half a year, but each financial institution does not exchange information and there is no feedback mechanism. If there is a “common good” Liu Bofu, deputy general manager of the digital Finance Department of Yongfeng securities, finally concluded that when the financial control systems need to integrate their independent and heterogeneous materials, how to find appropriate customers and provide accurate services needs the joint efforts of industry, University and research With the participation of the, we will jointly create a service model and provide intelligent marketing, intelligent audit and other services at the request of the FSC.
