中意台灣科技人才,Google、FB、Microsoft大舉加碼投資Taiwan

Google、FB、Microsoft大舉加碼投資Taiwan 

大廠積極投資台灣的主要誘因: 1. 中意台灣人才。美國財經雜誌富比世撰文指出,「人才」是吸引這些科技公司來台的主要原因。台灣的市場規模不大,但科技人才卻相當優秀。2 看好台灣的產業生態系

 

近期 Google、微軟、臉書(Facebook)、高通(Qualcomm)與美光(Micron)等大舉投資台灣,並擴到招募人才。 Google 設立新辦公園區 ,微軟啟動台灣 AI 100 計畫 ,臉書則設立台灣辦公室。

Google 裝置與服務資深副總裁歐斯特羅(Rick Osterloh)2019年 3 月來台宣布,將擴大在台灣營運,在新北市遠東通訊園區以租賃大樓方式,為 Google 在台灣發展預備雙倍成長空間。為協助台灣的 AI 與數位教育普及化,Google 期許 2020 年底前讓 1 萬人接受 AI 基礎課程、10 萬人獲得數位行銷知識。

 

美國財經雜誌「富比世」(Forbes)為此專文探討 Google 為何積極在台灣擴張。Google 台灣董事總經理簡立峰便曾說,Google 持續投資,是中意台灣優秀人才。簡立峰同時表示台灣在硬體科技裡是重要的供應鏈,Google 將生態系納為智慧台灣計畫的 3 大方向之一。

 

臉書 4 月 11 日進駐台北市信義區南山廣場 35 樓臉書台灣及香港總經理余怡慧當表示台灣是臉書非常重視的市場,會持續投資並徵才。

 

高通為因應擴大投資台灣,2019年也計劃在台灣展開最大規模的徵才計畫,美國總部特地安排主管來國內參加校園徵才活動。高通並展開一系列合作計畫,在台灣投資大專院校進行無線通訊、機器學習與人工智慧、多媒體 3 項領域研究,培育台灣年輕人才,提升台灣創新生態系,同時支持台灣研發社群開創出更多嶄新與開創性的產品及科技。

 

高通並與科技部合作,在台灣舉辦「高通台灣創新競賽」,鼓勵台灣新創團隊利用高通行動平台與各項技術,開發 5G、蜂巢式物聯網、機器學習及智慧城市等領域創新與實用產品。

 

美光今年也將在台灣徵才千人,除2 個月的年終獎金,並提供績效獎金、即時獎勵及久任獎勵,大學畢業工程師月薪新台幣 4.6 萬元起,碩士畢業工程師月薪 5 萬元起。

 

Best Talents and Competitive Labor Costs in Taiwan

American high-tech firms show a preference for Taiwan’s trainable talent. Taiwan’s engineering talent is easy to train for newer lines of work such as artificial intelligence (AI), says Kuo-yuan Liang, president of Taipei-based think tank Yuanta-Polaris Research Institute.

 

As to China, American firms have to worry about the impacts of a would-be trade war with China along with potential violations of intellectual property and data center security problems. In a sense, Taiwan seems a better option.

 

“Taiwan is already Google’s largest R&D center in Asia and it has strong software, hardware and cloud-computing teams — the core elements to develop AI technology. We expect Taiwan to become Google’s global strategic center for AI in the long term. It is by far Google’s largest recruitment drive in Taiwan. The recruitment and the expanded data center represent Google’s commitment to investment in Taiwan in the long term and our plan to commence many AI projects here. ” Google Taiwan managing director Chien Lee-feng (簡立峰) makes the statement to a media conference.

 

Google asserts they would convene boot camps to help Taiwan accelerate the popularization of AI education. Google’s initiative, dubbed “Intelligent Taiwan,” includes holding AI innovation boot camps in collaboration with National Taiwan University, National Tsing Hua University, National Chiao Tung University and National Cheng Kung University.

 

Students recommended by these universities are to join a five-day event this summer with the opportunity to have face-to-face discussions with Google’s global AI professionals, Chien said. He adds Taiwanese students have developed a foundation in advanced technologies, but lack the opportunity to interact with global professionals.

 

“Taiwan has a reasonable cost structure, with reasonable offerings to tech companies in terms of utilities, rentals and labor costs,” says William Foreman, president of the 1,000-member American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei.

 

Microsoft picked Taiwan over other parts of Asia because the island’s universities graduate talent across the manufacturing supply chain, according to greater China regional chairman and CEO Alain Crozier.

 

 “There’s no lack of hardware as well as soft talent that these institutions can take advantage of. Taiwan has some of the best talents around the region, and it comes cheap as well. If you want to establish a data center to be located in Northeast Asia, Taiwan looks attractive.” says Tony Phoo, an economist at Standard Chartered Bank in Taipei.
