A startup incubator fostering creative technological applications was
inaugurated Dec. 12 by the Cabinet on the site of the former ROC air force headquarters in Taipei City.
Launched as part of the first phase of the Taiwan Air Force initiative, the project serves as a flexible platform for promoting entrepreneurship and ingenuity spanning arts and culture, hardware and software integration, social innovation and technological development.
During the ceremony, Premier Mao Chi-kuo said TAF is a world-class undertaking enabling entrepreneurs to achieve multidisciplinary collaboration. “The word Taiwan is synonymous with the global innovation economy; air signifies a boundless space where ideas converge; and force means the momentum generated by that meeting of ideas.
“We envision the long-term development of TAF going beyond the Internet of Things. At its core is the Internet of Humans, a smart network connecting our lives through locally developed and implemented cutting-edge technology, transforming Taiwan’s infrastructure, ecology, education and environment.” [FULL STORY]
