Smart Retail Signage Shelf, and Sterilizer that Turns Water into Sanitizer 


LAS VEGAS, Nev., December 11, 2018, International CES – Ushering in an exciting new year, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Taiwan’s foremost trade promotion organization, will provide a first look at breakthroughs from some of Taiwan’s most innovative companies poised to lead the current AIoT trend. At the January 7th press conference at CES 2019, AI and facial recognition pioneer CyberLink, startup ELECLEAN, flat panel displays firm Innolux, and advanced unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) technology systems developer ThunderTiger, will showcase products that have the potential to dramatically improve people’s work and everyday lives – not just in Taiwan, but globally. 


These breakthrough products – which include a highly precise AI facial recognition system, a futuristic underwater drone, a smart digital shelf display, and a portable sterilizer device that turns water into disinfectant – are breakthroughs soon to be unveiled in the backdrop of a host of innovations launched in Taiwan this year.   


Taiwan, a country known for its key role in the global supply chain of the information and communication industry, welcomed the launch of Amazon’s latest innovation center in August, and pulsates with an invigorating atmosphere for product designers and manufacturers. Taiwan’s many cutting-edge AIoT innovations, exemplified by four presenting companies – also winners of the prestigious Taiwan Excellence award – will be unveiled at “The Future is Smart: Taiwan Innovations for 2019 & Beyond” CES press conference:


CyberLink – FaceMe

With years of research in the fields of artificial intelligence and facial recognition, CyberLink’s FaceMe® is one of the world’s most highly precise facial recognition systems. Powered by deep learning and a neural network algorithm, its high precision yields up to a 98.41% true acceptance rate (TAR) with a false acceptance rate (FAR) of less than 10-6 (0.000001). With such high precision, FaceMe is perfect for security and surveillance solutions and multiple applications such as smart homes, smart offices, smart retailers, and smart cities. Its AI facial recognition engine runs smoothly on systems with less memory or with lower CPU/GPU computing power, allowing deployments into a price-sensitive mass market. 


CyberLink, in addition to its expertise in AI and facial recognition, has shipped several hundred million copies of its multimedia software and apps, including the award-winning PowerDirector, PhotoDirector, and PowerDVD. Over the years CyberLink has forged close long-term partnerships with the world’s leading personal computer and peripheral device manufacturers. Through hardware preloading, CyberLink provides PC brands with versatile application software that helps them fulfill the needs of end customers.


ELECLEAN - Disinfectant Sprayer

ELECLEAN’s Disinfectant Sprayer is the first ever portable sterilizing device that transforms water into disinfectant, eliminating bacteria and viruses. After storing water in the container, simply press the switch to produce ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) and create a spray that can reduce common germs in daily life. It is certified effective in destroying 99.99% of contagions like E.coli, H1NI and enterovirus. It does not contain chemical add-ons and is light enough to be carried around. It serves as the perfect tool in cleaning the environment and disinfecting the human body.
