        National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) President Huey-Jen Jenny Su and the Director of Bank SinoPac Show-Chung Ho jointly signed a letter of intent at NCKU Museum on May 27 to launch a 3-year academic-industrial collaboration program aiming to set up Atelier Future, a program that educates and cultivates talents in financial fields as well as developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technologies in financial industry. Yau-Hwang Kuo, the Chairman of Institute for Information Industry and Chiu-Hui Chiu, the Director General of the Department of Academic-Industrial Collaboration and Science Park Affairs, Ministry of Science and Technology also attended the event.

        President Su noted, “NCKU is planning to integrate everyday activities, like exercising, learning and eating, into local lifestyle and collaborate with corporations to come up with an innovative business model. Bank SinoPac is going to offer students scholarships and competitive incentives for competent faculty members to help us achieve our goal.”

        She continued, “We will offer courses in which the instructors will ask students to draft their own project plans before helping them revise their projects. With the prototypes of the projects established, students can carry out their plans in the future.”

        Director Ho pointed out, “We have been making efforts to computerize financial services and digitize data for years, and we started to develop AI Technologies in financial services two years ago. Now our company is going to collaborate with NCKU and create a platform for talents to brainstorm their ideas and share their thoughts with others.”

        NCKU also held a conference regarding Atelier Future, inviting Adjunct Instructor Ching-Chun Huang and Professor Wen-Yu Su from the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE), Professor Tien-Hao Chang from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Ms. Yu-Pei Tsai, a doctoral candidate of NCKU Institute of Creative Industries Design and Wei-Na Chiang, the Deputy General Manager of Bank SinoPac to talk about the importance of talent and technologies.

        Prof. Huang pointed out, “Some industries may disappear in the future, but talent will always be one of the most substantial elements in industries.”

        Prof. Su added, “The courses our school offers also play crucial roles in educating and cultivating talents.”

        Atelier Future will be held at the former NCKU Library at the end of 2017. The program includes creating a platform for brainstorming and talent matching, as well as holding conferences, forums, presentations, salons, book fairs, and so on.

        經過7年的努力與堅持,成功大學參與日本東北大學領軍的微衛星RISESAT任務,2019年1月18日台灣時間上午8:50分從日本宇航局(JAXA)的Epsilon火箭成功發射升空,成大蘇慧貞校長帶領電漿所陳炳志所長、地科系林建宏教授、工程師劉偉台等師生在現場見證歷史。RISESAT已於台灣時間晚上7點與地面站順利接觸,初步確認衛星狀態正常。

        陳炳志指出,未來數週,待日本地面站逐步完成RISESAT的各項次級系統檢查,就會開啟為期2年的科學實驗任務,成大團隊主導大氣輝光與高空閃電的觀測,進行大氣電循環與太空天氣領域研究,瞭解影響人類生活越來越劇烈的極端氣候與閃電的關係,及太空環境變化對於導航與太空通訊的影響。

        陳炳志說,微衛星火箭發射,日本產官學研界與近千名民眾參與,也有其他亞洲國家團隊,因共同參與其他升空的衛星任務而來見證,成大團隊積極與現場國際太空相關人士交流,介紹成大在太空領域從科學到工程項目的完整發展,期待在已有的基礎上,透過國際合作在太空任務中扮演重要角色。目前,亞洲國家,如GDP不及於台灣的越南都積極投入太空領域的發展,台灣也應該能在政府強力支持下,結合產學研力量有積極表現。

        RISESAT為國際合作的科學任務,原預定2013年發射,因故延遲至今。18日上午衛星發射、順利入軌,完成最後一哩路,參與的團隊都極其興奮。
