Thank you very much for staying late for us.
Thank you very much.
We are from the US‑Taiwan Business Council, and as a group, as you were saying as well, a lot of technology companies, so both individual and even as a group, we love to explore how we can support the initiative.
There’s a role for international companies involved. By all means, I hope you’ll find a way to let us know, so that we can sort out how we can help.
You’re really groundbreaking here. Any other points or comments to make? You’ve been very generous with your time.
It’s all very exciting.
The regional government, are they willing? Are they eager partners, or is this...? It is new, and oftentimes there’s resistance to the new. I am just curious, what happens?
That’s a little of what we were talking about before, this is an informed consent, yes, you can see how well I’m driving over a period of time.
There are some insurance companies where consumers can chose consent to have a monitoring device in their vehicle, and then that affects their insurance rate. If they are seen as a good driver, better rate, bad driver, worse rate.
How do you balance all that privacy concerns? Is that in your portfolio as well?
Yeah. Structured data.
For now, it’s fine. Sure.
Right. Yeah, the website.
No. I don’t know.
That’s really interesting. Back on Asia Silicon Valley, what’s the time horizon for this? When do you expect to see result? You have metrics set out for results?
Interesting. Is there a model that you’re using? This feels quite cutting edge for government. Has any other country implemented anything like this? You mentioned there are pieces that you observed in US, like "We the People." This is an amalgamated approach and feels very integrated in a way ...
Yeah. I think that’d be really interesting to hear about the Asia Silicon Valley. I know that’s been in the works for probably not quite a year, six months or so. It would be great to understand...
Maybe if we could just...
It’s a pleasure to be here. We wanted to speak with you about it, to get your sense on what some of the new government programs in Asia Silicone Valley and so forth. Maybe just get a little progress report on that. Then we could also touch on individual ...
Taiwan’s actually our single biggest market. We manufacture our display tools down Tainan. We both sell here. We source here. We work with hundreds of local suppliers. We work with local universities. This is very important market for us.
We are an equipment maker. We make the tools that are used to produce semi‑conductors and flat panel displays, as well as solar photovoltaic equipment. All of those are key industries here in Taiwan.
Again, I’m William Morin with Applied Materials. I’m also on the executive committee of US‑Taiwan Business Council. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Applied Materials.
We’ve got the hard core here. Maybe we’ll just go around and introduce ourselves again. Vicki, would you?
