To respond to the digital economy trend, the Taipei City Government actively engaged in planning how to use the creative digital technology to help vendors develop creative service models, and fostered the new startup business for its development. For example, the government built the “Taipei digiBlock” to establish the industrial chain for innovative villages, and cooperate with the leading graphics processing unit (GPU) technology manufacturer NVIDIA. The first “Virtual Reality Lab @ Taipei” was then established at the Neihu office of NVIDIA, and free basic training for professionals and virtual reality (VR) equipment are available to support the new startup business as a strong backup force. In future, the Taipei City Government will continue to pool more resources for the startups to expand a more diversified business, and search for more opportunities to match with the job seekers on behalf of the vendors. In addition, plenty of awards and resources with subsidies are also available to new startups so that they are encouraged to join the emerging technology domain for R&D. Hopefully, they can develop innovation applications and services, and keep moving on to enter into the international market.

Block chain revolution may be a chance to move on for new industrial opportunities
By Chen, Kung/Professor, Department of Computer Science, National Chengchi University
Blockchain technology shares some of the features of decentralization and unmanipulated data, and has gradually become a new platform technology. If we observe its development trend such as the Smart Contract applications, we can tell from its industrial scope and find it is quite pervasive. It can improve the existing business procedure, and give support to develop a new business model. However, the Enterprise Blockchain allows the enterprise to use the consensus accounting system applied to high efficiency, privacy protection for transactional data through membership identification and authorized management. These applications have accordingly become a focal point.

By Cori Shieh/Secretary General, Taiwan Association for Virtual and Augmented Reality
Discovering the huge business opportunity in the AR/VR market, a number of large international software or hardware manufacturers have been attracted to enter into the market to develop and invest related devices and content. It can improve the existing product requirements specifications, and there is more room for creating new applications. On top of that, the end equipment for production capacity is also available. It is estimated that it can create a new business model through a whole-new interactive experience. Facing the fast development of industrial marketization and industrial scale-up, the author suggests that the government should start from a few base points. Build the industrial cluster of the ecology vertically, create a domestic demand in the market, and establish the test areas and domains to verify the business model for the services, as well as incorporate the local culture and historical experience.

With a focus on AI, the smart applications constructed may be applied to create new business opportunities
By Chen,Lieu-hen/Associate Professor, CSIE, National Chi Nan University
Since the advent of Big Data, in-depth learning has become the new emerging trend, with many developed countries and large technology manufacturers successively engaging in the artificial intelligence (AI) research, looking into medical treatment, finances, and industrial manufacturing, or other aspects of living. The derivative commercial applications now spread across the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), robots, self-driving cars, and image recognition. Apparently, the AI revolutionary influence has gradually changed the way it looks on technology applications and has subverted it entirely. However, many international cities promote smart city plans. They are dedicated to applying AI smart applications on public security, traffic management, anti-disaster and disaster rescue, tourist guides, and city resource optimization.
