NCKU Professor Sheng-Fu Liang from the Department of Information Management and Associate Professor Wan-Ju Yeh from the Department of Law in the College of Social Sciences invited a team from the Universiti Malaya to visit NCKU on June 14-15. This visit aimed to facilitate physical exchanges post-pandemic and promote future collaboration in research and talent development between the two countries, fostering the development of AI technology.

The Universiti Malaya is Malaysia's top-ranked university, with a rich history and a track record of nurturing many local and international elites, including politicians, entrepreneurs, and scientists. It is also a prominent institution listed in the global top 100 universities. The visiting team members from the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology included Professor Dr. Norjihan Abdul Ghani, Director of the Department of Information Systems; Professor Dr. Suraya Hamid, Deputy Director of Student Affairs; Professor Dr. Azah Anir Norman, Vice Executive Director of Value Creation and Enterprise Center; and Professor Dr. Sri Devi Ravana, Director of the Information Research Group, all of whom are distinguished scholars from the Universiti Malaya.

On the first day, they visited the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Center for Humanities and Social Sciences. The following day saw in-depth academic exchanges and discussions between the two sides. Professor Shyh-Hau Wang, Director of the Institute of Medical Informatics at the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, shared NCKU's collaboration with Purdue University, emphasizing the commitment to diverse cooperation models in teaching, research, talent exchange, academic research projects, and industry-academia collaboration. The goal is to cultivate the next generation of technology talents and contribute to information technology research and development in both countries. This successful cooperation experience serves as a reference for bilateral cross-border collaboration models.

NCKU professors shared several research team achievements. For instance, Professor Sheng-Fu Liang discussed sleep brainwave analysis research, where the team applies sleep analysis technology to clinical interpretation and collaborates with NCKU Hospital to develop a sleep interpretation platform, which is being promoted to relevant institutions nationwide. Professor Wen-Hsiang Lu, with expertise in AI natural language processing app development, and Associate Professor Chung-Ping Young, who focuses on revitalizing the Siraya language using information technology, showcased the ongoing development of an AI translation system for Southeast Asian languages, highlighting research results in cross-language dialogue and hoping for more opportunities through international cooperation. Chief Narn-Yih Lee from the Computer and Network Center shared NCKU's achievements in information security, emphasizing the importance of cybersecurity issues in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Professor Azah Anir Norman from the Malaysian team also held a special lecture at the Department of Information Management, leading several NCKU information science students in a Design Thinking Workshop, emphasizing a people-centric problem-solving approach. Starting from user needs, the workshop explored problem-solving methods and discussed various possibilities for development, showcasing many practical and creative examples with lively interaction.

As countries worldwide strive to develop AI technology in response to technological advancements and industry demands, nurturing technology talents becomes crucial. Through this cross-border exchange meeting, both parties have outlined potential future cooperation models, aiming to leverage their rich knowledge achievements for cross-border collaboration and jointly create a new future for AI technology.
