COMPUTEX Official Award BC Award Added AI & Big Data to Award Categories’ Lineup.

A 2017 report from PwC titled “Sizing the Prize” discussed that usage of AI can increase productivity; from process automation or process augmentation; and increase customer demand from customized offerings. The result would be an increase in Global GDP by 14% or an aggregate of $15.7 trillion in 2030. The 3 regions to benefit the most from this increase are predicted to be China, North America, and Southern Europe; while the industries which will benefit the most from AI & big data application will be retail, technology, and medical/ healthcare.

 For this reason, COMPUTEX 2018 welcomes the AI & Big Data category to its official award, the Best Choice Award (also known as BC Award) Categories Lineup. The main focus is the application of AI and Big Data in improving businesses, societies, and economies. This award is open for the providers of software, hardware, and cloud solutions in AI and Big data. As is for the other categories, the winners of this category will have their products displayed in Nangang Exhibition Hall 1 during COMPUTEX and the golden winners will be honored during the COMPUTEX TAIPEI opening ceremony.

SMEs and startups can also join the Jury’s Special Award which will be given to candidates whose products/ services have not only great quality, but also great potential. Winners of the Jury’s Special Award will also get the same benefits of exposure, visibility, and will be displayed in the same gallery as the other winners of BC Award.
