What was once purely a work of fiction has now become a reality. The world of AI is advancing at warp speed. From your smartphone to your social media feeds, AI is transforming our world and reshaping the way we live our lives.
With AI being integrated into more applications, companies are now looking to harness its power to revolutionize their operations and enhance customer experiences. According to a recent study, half of the respondents reported that their companies had already adopted AI in at least one of their business functions.
AI technology has become a real competitive advantage for businesses, and Taiwan is leading the charge when it comes to AI innovation
Let’s take a look at three amazing companies that were recently honored at the 2021 Taiwan Excellence Awards for their mind-blowing AI products.
Detecting Diseases In The Blink Of An Eye
Quick, accurate medical diagnoses are more important than ever, especially since the pandemic has made remote healthcare a necessity. Luckily, Acer Medical has developed an AI-powered diagnostic software called VeriSee DR that can analyze images of a patient’s retina in just three seconds and provide a referral recommendation. This is a huge help when it comes to early detection of diabetic retinopathy (DR), a condition that can lead to blindness if left untreated. And the best part? VeriSee DR has already been approved in several countries, so patients and doctors alike can benefit from its speedy and efficient technology.
Facial Recognition Gets A Makeover
Facial recognition technology has been around for a while, but AI has taken it to the next level. Cyberlink’s FaceMe facial-recognition engine uses deep-learning algorithms to achieve a 99.73% accuracy rate, even when people are wearing masks (which, let’s face it, has been pretty common lately). This is great news for the financial industry, which is always on the lookout for new ways to combat cybercrime. But facial recognition is useful in all sorts of sectors, from healthcare to home security, and FaceMe is leading the charge when it comes to AI-powered precision.
Robots, Robots, Everywhere!
We’ve all heard of robots on the factory floor, but what about robots in the service industry? Ayuda, a service robot designed and manufactured by Syscom in Taiwan, is a marvel of AI technology. It can do everything from facial and voice recognition to video and voice chats, QR-code reading, and even human form detection. But wait, there’s more! Ayuda is also capable of environment mapping and target navigation, which means it can move around independently and even tell people to put on their masks. It’s like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s real and it’s here, in Taiwan.
The Future Is Now
AI is changing the game across industries. With Acer Medical, Cyberlink, and Syscom, just three examples of incredible companies that are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with AI, we can be sure to see more exciting developments in the near future!
