講題：納米纖維膜技術在水凈化處理方面的突破性進展 （Breakthrough nanofibrous membranes for water purification）
Abstract: The fabrication of nanofibers can be accomplished by using a variety of methods, including electro-spinning and a combination of chemical/mechanical processes, especially for cellulose, as a form of green sustainable resource material. Non-woven nanofiber mats have unique properties, such as interconnected pores, a very large surface-to-volume ratio, and a high capacity for surface modifications, making such scaffolds useful for fabrication of high throughput separation membranes. Directed water channels in the barrier layer are formed through the formation of interface between the cross-linked nanofibers and the polymer matrix, while the gap thickness may be regulated by physical interactions or chemical bonding.
In the present context, advances in electro-spinning and fundamental studies on nascent cellulose crystals by means of synchrotron x-ray scattering have provided us with new insight to use the fibrous format with varying pore sizes for applications from micro-filtration via ultra-filtration to nano-filtration. We have taken advantage of unique breakthroughs in chemical modifications and physical scale-up transformations to drastically improve filtration membrane development with predesigned properties. In particular, we have, for example, examined the NF membrane performance as influenced by the barrier layer substrate and reduced fouling by using a highly hydrophilic barrier layer. The same concept has been extended to the pervaporation process by using a highly hydrophilic graphene oxide layer. Performance characteristics of nanofibrous scaffolds for water purification applications are presented.

講題: 大數據、大創意、大商機 (Big Data, Big Idea, Huge Business)
3、大創意: 在警政, 電信, 汽車, 能源, 醫療等產業利用大數據 創造大商機
After internet proliferated into all aspects of human life and all industries, cloud computing and Big Data are plaguing the world now. With Data Centric as the new horizon, Big Data likes a new wave runs through all industries, changing landscapes, leveling fields, and provide new venues for many earlier adapters to either change the game or stay far ahead with their competitors.
In this talk, we will look into the nature of the Big Data and introduce to the audience the changes now under way in many industries. Though no one can predict the future, or really? This talk will provide a peek into the time to come and the movers and shakers in the new world.
