These breakthrough products have the potential to dramatically improve people’s work and everyday lives and include a highly intelligent robot for serving the entire family, a drone of the future, a smart navigation motorcycle dashboard, cutting-edge surgical glasses and intelligent vision systems for the science of robotics.

“With the rise of AI and IoT, Taiwan is shifting to an innovation-driven economy. To accelerate innovation, TAITRA provides an integrated platform for Taiwanese startups to expand their global reach. We’re an Accelerator+. We’re also a “Smart Integrator,” said TAITRA President and CEO, Walter M. S. Yeh. “You can see this shift to an innovation-driven economy in COMPUTEX’s focus. For the second consecutive year, COMPUTEX 2018 will highlight two featured exhibits: SmarTEX and InnoVEX. InnoVEX, the leading startup show in Asia, is building a networking platform for global startups. The theme for InnoVex 2018 is “Finding the Right Fit.” It’s all part of COMPUTEX’s mission to help startups find their strategy partners.”
