A delegation of eight Taiwanese computer scientists visited Edinburgh from 18th-21stOctober, where they held a series of lectures on the Internet of Things (IoT) at the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE).
The team, which was led by Professor Yu-Chee Tseng, Dean of the College of Computer Science at the National Chiao Tung University, also attended a welcome dinner hosted by Professor Marian Scott, Vice President of the RSE, who praised the wide-ranging achievements made in UK-Taiwan science and technology collaboration.
Further to the seminar, the delegation visited the University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics and the Heriot-Watt University’s School of Computer Science, where they discussed the potential for further co-operation between British and Taiwanese universities in the S&T field. The respective visits were organised by the TRO’s Science and Technology division.
The computer science delegation was supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) under the MOST-RSE memorandum of understanding (MOU) on scientific collaboration. Further to the existing MOU, MOST and the RSE are expected to announce a joint project on the IoT in early November.
