AI in Health: Startup Innovation from Taiwan & The Netherlands
Techleap’s 2021 AI Report has revealed a remarkable trend: in the Netherlands, Health is the most popular industry to operate in among ‘AI-Core’ startups and scaleups — companies that develop artificial intelligence as a part of their core technologies. Even though the Health sector’s stringent regulations and interconnected institutions might require significant time and resources for startups to navigate, the report shows that Dutch AI founders are more than willing to take on the challenge. Indeed, as strong Dutch companies like Aidence and SkinVision have shown, along with its challenges, the sector contains opportunities for AI startups to succeed.
Meanwhile, in Taiwan, the various health applications of AI have also been generating tremendous attention and recognition from both public and private stakeholders. From Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology, a considerable sum of NT$ 5 billion (152.64 million Euros) has been committed for the years 2018-2023 to support AI-connected research, and leading Taiwanese universities such as NTU and NCKU have established AI Research Centers with an emphasis on the healthcare & biomedical fields. At the same time, the private sector has produced high potential AI-in-Health startups such as aetherAI and Deep01, often supported by funding from established Taiwanese tech corporations like ASUS and Quanta Computer.
In various other sectors of technology, inventive tech businesses and industry pioneers from Taiwan & the Netherlands have had a long history of mutually beneficial collaboration. Naturally, then, the advancement of the AI-in-Health sector in both geographies raises the question: What can AI-in-Health innovators, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders from Taiwan & the Netherlands do for each other?
The ‘AI in Health: Startup Innovation from Taiwan & The Netherlands’ event co-organized by TBA-NL Innovation Committee, TGN, Tiger Accelerator, AI-Hub Midden Nederland & Startup Utrecht, will seek to make a start in answering this compelling question. On September 28, 2021, startups, corporates & KOLs in the AI-in-Health sector from Taiwan & the Netherlands will come together in an online conference, and share their knowledge on the latest developments in the field.
