Kaohsiung, March 17 (CNA) Terry Gou (郭台銘), chairman of manufacturing giant Hon Hai
Precision Industry Co., and Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Sunday to promote the development of the city’s smart technology.
The MOU was signed at a press conference that was live-streamed on YouTube following a tour of Hon Hai’s data center and supercomputer at the Kaohsiung Software Park.

Speaking at the press conference, referred to as “AI Kaohsiung Smart Industry and Agriculture,” Gou pointed out that AI refers to artificial intelligence and also sounds like the word for “love” when spoken in mandarin Chinese.
Hence, it can be implied that using high technology to “love” Kaohsiung can not only help bring prosperity to the city but more importantly, can help the city’s industries, Gou said.
