A two-week International Honors Program sponsored by TMU on artificial intelligence, “big data” and biomedical technologies attracted 25 students from 7 Indian universities.


Among those who participated were teachers and students from prestigious Indian schools such as the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpu, Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Anna University. These participants experienced an outstanding survey of teaching and research during the December course. This event drew on TMU’s strengths in the fields of medical artificial intelligence, big data applications and biomedical technologies.

The Office of Global Engagement set up the short-term course to focus on data and engineering areas of particular interest to Indian students. Other TMU offices cooperating with this program include the Graduate Institute of Data Science; the College of Humanities and Social Sciences; the Graduate Institute of Mind, Brain, and Consciousness; the College of Medical Science and Technology’s Graduate Institute of Biomedical Informatics; and the College of Biomedical Engineering.

Together these TMU offices are planning a series of courses allowing students to gain useful and relevant knowledge in a short 10-day period.

The students also visited Wanfang Hospital and became familiar with Taiwan’s medical and health insurance systems. They visited the Grid Computing Laboratory at Academia Sinica to get a glimpse of Taiwan’s top research institution and its sophisticated equipment.

Students experienced Taiwanese life and culture while learning. Many trainees who had come to Taiwan for the first time to attend the program were impressed with the curriculum, the arrangements and the school’s thoughtful reception. They also learned about TMU and the city of Taipei, and increased the possibility that they would continue their studies later.

Such courses allow TMU colleges and faculty to demonstrate their research and teaching expertise to the Indian teachers and students as part of our school’s strategy of pursuing southbound development.
