In recognition of outstanding research achievements utilizing the research and development service platforms provided by the National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs), NARLabs launched the "R&D Service Platform Highlight Achievement Award" in 2023. The Special Excellence Award for this year was conferred upon the research team led by Professor Pau-Choo Chung, a distinguished professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), with a prize of NT$300,000. The team's research achievement is titled "An Integrated Collaborative Open Artificial Intelligence Pathological Analysis Platform," developed using the Taiwan Computing Cloud AI supercomputer provided by the National Center for High-performance Computing (NCHC).


Professor Pau-Choo Chung currently serves as the Dean of the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at NCKU. Her research team collaborates with physicians from NCKU Hospital, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, and other medical institutions to develop digital pathology AI analysis models. These models analyze digital pathology images to detect human tissue and pathological regions, calculate quantitative indicators related to disease diagnosis, and provide objective pathological analysis results to assist physicians in diagnosis. To date, Professor Jan's team has developed tumor detection models, liver fibrosis AI analysis technology, and liver fat AI analysis models, with several digital pathology AI analysis research achievements published in international journals and conferences.


Furthermore, the team integrated their digital pathology AI analysis research achievements to construct the ALOVAS digital pathology cloud analysis platform in the cloud space provided by NCHC. This platform integrates digital pathology image analysis, annotation, pathological AI model training, and pathological AI analysis functions, offering physicians a convenient one-stop digital pathology image analysis integration service. Subsequently, led by former NCKU President Huey-Jen Su and NCKU President Meng-Ru Shen (former Dean of NCKU Hospital), the AI Capstone project expanded the platform's functionality through clinical cooperation. They developed the Federated Learning with Aggregation (FLAg) mechanism, the world's first collaborative training mechanism for pathology image analysis, and interfaced with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) system, making it the first international partner for pathology image analysis with the NIH.


The National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) is a foundation under the National Science and Technology Council, with the primary mission of supporting the development of national science and technology in coordination with the National Science Council. Its four major tasks are to construct research and development platforms, support academic research, promote cutting-edge technology, and cultivate talent in science and technology. With the vision of "Global Excellence, Local Impact" and the goal of "Innovative Technology, Safeguarding Taiwan," NARLabs operates seven research centers that provide valuable hardware and software facilities not easily accessible to individual universities in Taiwan. They also offer various professional research and development service platforms to assist the academic and research communities in developing cutting-edge science and technology.

On August 31st, the Special Excellence Award was presented by President Fa-Cheng Lin of NARLabs (far left) to Professor Pau-Choo Chung (second from left) and doctoral student Chien-Yu Chiu (second from right) from NCKU. Director Chao-Liang Chang (far right) from the NCHC was also present.
