Industrial Technology Research Institute


Computational Intelligence Technology Center

Facing the era of big data, in 2013 ITRI established the first big data R&D center, the Computational Intelligence Technology Center (CITC), to bridge the big data technology across industries in Taiwan. CITC has played a vital role in Taiwan's Artificial Intelligence and big data development by leveraging ITRI’s various resources for the R&D of many cross-disciplinary technologies and domain knowledge. CITC is fully devoted to performing groundbreaking research and development for transferring technology and supporting innovation in companies regarding the enhancement of industrial competitiveness and economic value.

Artificial Intelligence and big data is the latest competitive advantage for businesses while the value of assets has shifted from tangible to intangible. Data is now woven into every industry and function across the global economy. The use of Artificial Intelligence and big data will become the basis of competition and growth for Taiwan’s businesses, especially in our manufacturing and service industry, by enhancing the productivity and creating significant value for global economy with waste reduction and increased quality of products and services.

CITC was established for two missions. One is to develop the intelligent analytics technologies to boost Artificial Intelligence and big data core capabilities for local IT software companies. The other is to apply intelligent analytics to help the related industries to enhance their productivity and create new business opportunities. CITC’s strategy is to integrate ITRI’s multidisciplinary resources into Taiwan’s advantageous industries. CITC cooperates with academies, industries and research organizations of international and local partners to enhance Taiwan’s technology development by interconnecting with SoLoMo (Social, Local, Mobile), IOT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligent), Open Source and Open Data.

The cross-disciplinary approach enables CITC’s core technology capabilities to provide intelligent analytics and machine learning algorithms that industries need. CITC develops an open source Artificial Intelligence and big data platform to create solutions that facilitate the innovative application for service design and business model for industries.
