Kicking-off the 2015 IT Month

Mayor Ko Wen-je graced Taipei City Government booth at the 2015 IT Month. The annual event promoting the latest IT products and services opened at TWTC Hall 1 on November 28.

During his stopover, Ko experienced the booth’s “Smart City, 3D Taipei” motion sensor technology by riding a YouBike through virtual landmarks and tourist attractions of the city displayed on the screen. He also visited the different zones showcasing a wide range of ICT achievements, including iTAP city cloud and Hackathon promoting the development of energy saving applications, among other projects and services.

The Taipei City Government booth is divided into Smart Infrastructure, Smart Citizens, and Smart Government sections, featuring newly-launched civil services and interactive activities to promote a convenient lifestyle.

Between November 28 and December 6, those who visit the city’s booth (No.A630) and participate in games as well as quizzes about intelligent Taipei services can bring home souvenirs.

In addition, the Department of Information Technology invites the public to take part in the online campaign introducing the mascot of the agency—“230”—and what the city’s has been working on to enhance local IT services.
