Reportedly, Microsoft (MSFT) is to launch two AI-powered services designed to manage telecom networks, with the same capabilities used to manage the tech giant’s Azure cloud platform. Operators can benefit from its advanced artificial intelligence that helps to unlock new business opportunities and dive into insights into their operations including the rollout of high-speed 5G networks. Microsoft first entered the 5G arena after its acquisition of cloud networking companies Affirmed Networks and Metaswitch in 2020.
“What we’re doing is taking our native cloud work and making it specific to this telecom operator network space. I think a great example of that is all the AI ops work we are introducing into the system. We are bringing that same technology into this space. Every operator I’ve shown this to is extremely excited,” stated Jason Zander, executive vice president of strategic missions and technologies at Microsoft.

Taiwan is a destination for assisted reproductive technology (ART) throughout Asia and also has the lowest birthrate in the world. Taiwan’s birth rate has dropped as a result of similar trends elsewhere in Asia, such as later marriage and increasing cost of living. Further, the average age of patients requiring therapy is rising. Fortunately, according to the statistics published by “ICMART”, the overall implantation rate of therapy in Taiwan ranked second worldwide, almost equal to the level in the U.S., and a leading country in Asia. The stable high success rate derives from updated medical research and enriched clinical experience from the physicians, advanced laboratory facilities and technology as well as patient-centered customized treatment plans (depending on their age, ovarian functions and causes of infertility, etc.). Prior to the pandemic, in 2019 there were approximately 55,000 ART cases in Taiwan, an increase of approximately 55% compared to 2016. In July 2021, the government in Taiwan implemented a subsidy plan for ART with the goal of encouraging more local married couples to undergo ART treatments. The subsidies are also available to transnational couples in which one spouse holds a Taiwanese ID card.
