Digital Epidemic Prevention

Dr. Perng Sung-Yueh, Associate Professor at National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University’s Institute of Science, Technology, and Society, discussed Taiwan’s digital epidemic prevention. The professor believes that epidemic prevention through digital technologies must ensure that all members of society, regardless of social class, culture, or background are included within epidemic prevention policies. Additionally, to safeguard democracy and people’s freedom, the government should not avoid issues related to personal privacy and information when collecting big data.
