NCKU Collaborates with NVIDIA to Deepen AI Research

Synergy Correlation

NVIDIA Founder Jensen Huang delivered an AI-themed keynote speech on June 2nd, showcasing a map of Taiwan listing NVIDIA's collaborating supply chain partners and universities, including National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). NCKU has established multifaceted collaborations with NVIDIA in AI hardware, algorithms, and applications in biomedical, financial, and design fields. In 2017, NCKU became the first university in Taiwan to adopt NVIDIA DGX-1 supercomputers, significantly enhancing research capabilities across diverse disciplines.


Collaborating with NVIDIA and E.SUN Bank in 2017, NCKU pioneered the Financial AI Technology Center, the only collaboration in Taiwan between NVIDIA's GPU family group chips and the financial sector. Continuing their collaboration, NCKU added five additional NVIDIA DGX-1 supercomputers in 2019, totaling six, to further bolster their AI research efforts. Additionally, the National Cheng Kung University Hospital's genomic precision medicine initiative utilizes NVIDIA DGX-1 supercomputers to power comprehensive genomic medical laboratory analysis platforms.


In 2023, NVIDIA partnered with ZOTAC and NCKU's College of Planning and Design to establish the NVIDIA Studio Smart Classroom, exemplifying a prime model for nurturing talent and fostering industry-academia collaboration.


NVIDIA supercomputing capabilities inject robust energy into NCKU's academic research, particularly in biomedical applications requiring extensive computation and the use of generative AI. Dr. Che-Wei Lin, Associate Professor at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, developed a "deep learning-based ectopic heartbeat detection algorithm" achieving speedups of 5 to 40 times under different usage scenarios with NVIDIA's technical guidance. Dr. Lin presented these findings at the NVIDIA AI Summit on June 5th, part of the Taipei Computer Exhibition, themed "Exploring Infinite Possibilities in the AI Era," featuring about 30 speakers with only 2 from academia.


NCKU also integrates NVIDIA's Jetson Nano devices for edge computing, aligning with the Ministry of Education's interdisciplinary talent development project in precision health industries. Led by Professor Chia-Chin Chen from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Precision Health Innovative Smart Medical Materials Promotion Center has offered courses since 2023 on "Applications of AI Internet of Things in Digital Precision Health." Dr. Che-Wei Lin, co-director, recently joined NVIDIA's Campus Ambassador Training Program (Deep Learning Institute University Ambassador Program) to collaborate with NVIDIA in nurturing future AI talent in Taiwan.


NCKU remains committed to comprehensive AI research and talent development, encompassing next-generation robotics, smart manufacturing, drug and vaccine development, smart hospitals and elderly care, information security, clean energy, digital twins for epidemic prevention, and smart medical applications. Future collaborations with NVIDIA will further explore the boundless possibilities of the AI era.
