Opportunities and challenges of Taiwan's technology development in the post-pandemic era
In the face of the global pneumonia pandemic, Taiwan's pandemic prevention performance is evident to the world. The Industrial Technology Research Institute has developed a "platform with zero-touch pandemic prevention technology" that can provide 24/7, non-contact, real-time monitoring of patients' vital signs and symptoms, using "technology power" to guard the pandemic prevention frontline. The construction of a smart value-added platform for public health and health care applications on the Internet of Things (IoT), combined with smart computing functions and community model computing mechanisms, allows the government's overall medical information to be used in real time. Taiwan people have maintained their fitness and exercise habits in the midst of the pandemic, which can be seen as an opportunity to transform and upgrade the fitness and exercise related industries in the future.
The new pneumonia pandemic has brought global communication to a standstill and has had a great impact on people's lifestyles. Taiwan has turned the crisis into an opportunity to share its experience of pandemic prevention with the international community through research and reports on smart medicine and preventive medicine, demonstrating that Taiwan is an important partner in the global fight against the pandemic.
