We can see only a short distance ahead
but we can see plenty there that needs to be done

Come on in !
Make yourself at home

Tony KE Lab was founded in August, 1992. Major works in the lab are related to knowledge engineering research. By means of multimedia technology and knowledge processing, a database of Taiwanese culture and others are also presented to the people who love Taiwan.
