Taipei, Dec. 6 (CNA) The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) signed a
memorandum of understanding with U.S. high-tech giant Microsoft Corp. Wednesday on artificial intelligence (AI) development.
The MOST’s National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) inked the accord for the strategic partnership on behalf of the ministry, aimed at cooperation with Microsoft in three arenas of AI: big data technology, AI platform development and efforts to cultivate a talent pool, NARLabs said.
According to NARLabs, Microsoft is one of the major enterprises in the world that can provide big data services, so the cooperation is expected to allow NARLabs researchers to use the U.S. partner’s smart data search tools to pin down data they need quickly for analysis. [FULL STORY]
