Mr. Ted Chang, Chief Technology Officer of Quanta Computer, introduced the company’s new products to the AU faculty, for instance, QOCA atm, which uses POD skills to integrate medical images and structured data analysis and which can provide doctors with smart clinical decisions in precision medication. He also mentioned that QOCA atm provides a cloud outpatient clinic making possible long-distance group consultation for the patients in the remote countryside. For instance, if an eye doctor is needed in a country village, the director of the health clinic can contact an eye doctor on line in a faraway city hospital. They can then start a shared consultation for the patient, overcoming the inconvenience of long-distance travel and its attendant costs.

“QOCA apc can be used in isolation wards, home health care, day care centers, as well as in community care centers and quarantine,” Ted Chang stated. For instance, a millimeter wave radar sensor can be installed in the bathroom. It gives warning signals if the senior slips while inside. President Tsai expressed keen interest in this new device for it can greatly improve the quality of care for the seniors at the AU hospital.
Regarding smart agriculture, Professor Whai-En Chen, Dean of Official? of Information and Communication Technology and Professor Jason Yi-Bing Lin, Lifetime Chair Professor at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, are now using the facilities of Quanta Computer to design meteorological sensors, which can automatically check the temperature, humidity and sunlight of tomatoes and grapes in the field.
Dr. Tien Fu Lin, Deputy Magistrate in Changhua Country Government, pointed out that the biogas residue and liquid out of pen manure is a thorny problem for environmental protection. He asked for the university’s assistance in this regard.
