Yuan High-Tech AI Team Won the Gold Medal of Kaggle AI Competition
Taipei, Taiwan - Oct 18, 2021 -

The AI team of YUAN High Tech ( 5474.TW ), the world No.1 multimedia audio-visual product leader, won the gold medal in the gravity wave detection competition held on Kaggle and was ranked 6th in the global rankings. The core figure who led the AI team to achieve the outstanding results is the first Taiwanese who won the championship in the sea lion competition on Kaggle, Peilian Zhou ( outrunner ).



Kaggle has almost 200,000 data scientists around the world, specializing in solving problems from computer science perspective to statistics, economics and mathematics.

The astronomical competition about gravity wave detection was held by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology. Gravity waves are signals caused by colliding double black holes. These signals are unimaginable tiny ripples in the space-time structure and can only be detected through the most sensitive instrument on earth, the global gravitation wave detector network. Since these tiny signals can easily be masked by the detector noise, the competitors need to build an AI model within 90 days to analyze whether gravity waves are hidden within 220,000 simulated signals.

Peilian, the leader of YUAN AI team, said: “YUAN High Tech has always consider the focus on the industrial specificity as an entry point to solve the problem. Hope to provide customer the most effective model through professional and cross-field experience, so on to build a Taiwanese multimedia audio-visual brand. Wining the Kaggle award again is an affirmation to the long-term effort of our AI team. It’s a motivation for us to continuously improve and upgrade.”

Founded in 1990, YUAN High Tech is a global leader in image capturing modules with deep cultivation in professional fields such as radio and television, medical treatment, education, live broadcasting, industrial control and monitoring. YUAN has been providing high-quality and high-definition multimedia audio-visual products, and has an unshakable leading position in the B2B pro AV market. In 2011, YUAN began to enter the field of AI visual analysis and developed a cross-platform package to help software companies building professional applications. The package consists four major modules: capturing, recording, streaming and analyzing. The bottom layer of the package is integrated with Intel and nVIDIA GPUs to improve the performance of system image processing. The cross-platform design can operate smoothly in PC-based or embedded systems. For common AI recognition scenarios, the package provides dozens of modules such as scene content recognition, face and expression, behavior and gestures, allowing customers to integrate a single set of SDK from image collection to data analysis.

YUAN High Tech invests more resources than hardware in the software research and development team, committing to provide AI vision solutions that are helpful to the world with high-quality products and software services!
