Guardforce AI Announces Collaboration with Hong Kong Industrial Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Centre to Develop Worldwide Robotics Solutions and AI Cloud Platforms

Guardforce AI Co., Limited (“Guardforce AI” or the “Company”), an integrated security solutions provider, announced today a collaboration agreement with Hong Kong Industrial Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Centre Limited (FLAIR), founded by the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) with RWTH Aachen Campus in Germany as its major collaborator, to work together on developing Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) solutions and artificial intelligence (AI) cloud platforms worldwide. Under the agreement, Guardforce AI will be provided access to FLAIR technology and know-how, over an initial two-year period, starting in August 2022. Guardforce AI and FLAIR plan to work together on providing customized robotics services to clients worldwide.

Located at the Hong Kong Science Park, FLAIR is part of AIR@InnoHK, which is one of two world-class research clusters being established by InnoHK Clusters of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government, to support Hong Kong in developing into an international innovation and technology hub.

We’re very thankful to Guardforce AI for the sponsorship that will help accelerate our research work on AI and robotics development. We look forward to collaborating with Guardforce AI on the successful application of our research results to enhance RaaS development and unleash innovative possibilities for industries seeking to adopt AI & robotics solutions.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Dr. Ming Ge, Chief Operating Officer of FLAIR


Collaborating with FLAIR is an important milestone in establishing a first-class R&D center based in Hong Kong.   Within the past 24 months, we have been rapidly expanding our RaaS platform from one market to ten markets, including Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Dubai, Australia, Japan, and the U.S., to meet the growing needs of our clients and partners. Getting involved with a truly innovative R&D center will strengthen our ability to build a successful ecosystem surrounding our robotic solutions and will help boost our ability to develop better RaaS solutions that will be specifically tailored to the requirements of local markets.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Olivia Wang, CEO of Guardforce AI
