Facial Recognition Brings AI Education to Taiwan's Schools
Taiwan's Ministry of Education is promoting AI learning. They want to reshape the school environment to make AI an integral part of students’ lives. In New Taipei, some elementary schools are installing GIGABYTE's AI-based facial recognition solution so students can check out books without a library card. Reading has never been easier, and educators can demonstrate the benefits of AI with this evergreen “teachable moment”.

The AI Facial Recognition Solution’s Three Components
At the center of the AI Facial Recognition Solution is GFaceManager, which offers convenient control of the entire solution through a graphical user interface. It is also the only software that can access the encrypted biometric data.
The front end of the solution is AIO-M2, an all-in-one device that combines a 7-inch display with dual IR and RGB camera lens. A user who has gone through the registration process can be recognized by the AIO-M2 in a matter of seconds.
GIGABYTE’s R-Series Rack Servers were designed with versatility in mind, striking an optimal balance between efficiency and reliability. When serving as the back end of the AI Facial Recognition Solution, it fulfills three roles: the database, the AI engine, and the web server that supports the GFaceManager.

Tech GuideWhat is a Server? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
In the modern age, we enjoy an incredible amount of computing power—not because of any device that we own, but because of the servers we are connected to. They handle all our myriad requests, whether it is to send an email, play a game, or find a restaurant. They are the inventions that make our intrinsically connected age of digital information possible. But what, exactly, is a server? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents our latest Tech Guide. We delve into what a server is, how it works, and what exciting new breakthroughs GIGABYTE has made in the field of server solutions.
A team of scientists at NTU has adopted GIGABYTE’s G242-P32 server and the Arm HPC Developer Kit to incubate a “high-precision traffic flow model”—a smart traffic solution that can be used to test autonomous vehicles and identify accident-prone road sections for immediate redress. The ARM-based solution gives the project a 200% boost in efficiency, thanks to the cloud-native processor architecture that “speaks” the same coding language as the roadside sensors, the high number of CPU cores that excel at parallel computing, the synergy with GPUs that enable heterogeneous computing, and the ISO certifications which make the resulting model easily deployable for automakers and government regulators alike.
GIGABYTE Technology is not only a leading brand in high-performance server solutions—it is also an active force for good when it comes to CSR and ESG activities. Case in point: in 2020, GIGABYTE provided four G482-Z50 servers to Taiwan’s Cheng Kung University. The servers were used to train a team of talented students, who went on to take first place in that year’s APAC HPC-AI Competition in Singapore. The parallel computing performance of the servers’ processors, the seamless connectivity between the servers, and the servers’ unrivalled reliability are the reasons why GIGABYTE servers are ideal for educating the next generation of supercomputing experts. GIGABYTE is happy to give back to society and contribute to human advancement through high tech solutions.
Processors based on the ARM architecture, an alternative to the mainstream x86 architecture, is gradually making the leap from mobile devices to servers and data centers. In this Tech Guide, GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance server solutions, recounts how ARM was developed. We also explain the various benefits of ARM processors and recommend ARM servers for different sectors and applications.
