Inventec Corp (英業達) plans to allocate more research and development (R&D) resources to products related to artificial intelligence (AI), 5G technology and automotive electronics, as the company aims to cultivate new growth catalysts in the long term, Inventec chairman Tom Cho (卓桐華) said yesterday.
“We believe that AI, 5G and automotive electronics will be the next growth drivers in the technology industry and we do not want to miss opportunities in these areas,” Cho told a media gathering in Taipei after being elected chairman following former chairman Richard Lee’s (李詩欽) retirement.
As Inventec’s strength is not writing algorithms for AI and 5G, Cho said the company’s focus would be developing high-powered computing capabilities and hardware for the new technologies.
Cho said Inventec is confident it can secure a firm position in the AI industry, as the company has been maintaining close business relationships with large technology companies that are interested in developing such products. [FULL STORY]
