    They're based on real people, real stories, and how Taiwan has used agriculture to help the world. Taiwan is also known as a technology island. So of course biomedical is one of the areas we excel in.

    The first episode premiered on Oct. 11, showcasing innovations in smart agriculture. One of them is a technology that can turn food waste into fertilizer in just three hours. It took a team at Tetani AgriBiotech seven years to perfect this method.

    Traditional composting uses microorganisms. It takes a long time, about three months. When we use enzymes, it can be finished within three hours, which cuts down on a lot of time.

    There's also this agricultural drone developed by GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology. Traditionally it takes 30 to 40 minutes to manually spray one hectare, but this drone takes only 10 to 15 minutes.

    The second episode, which premieres Oct. 18, focuses on Taiwan's biomedical breakthroughs. In one innovation, the Tri-Service General Hospital uses AI diagnostics to determine the cause of cardiac emergencies. By simply analyzing real-time electrocardiography data, there's no need to wait for patients' blood results.


    Also featured is the world's smallest molecular rapid test system developed by Industrial Technology Research Institute. It's a highly accurate COVID test that weighs just 600 grams.

    It is a portable molecular detection system. For most nucleic acid detection systems, the weight is about 10 kilograms.

    Due to the global impact of COVID-19 this year, Taiwan's efforts in epidemic prevention have also been valued by the international community. Therefore, in the biomedical technology sector, the production team specially studied the past results of Taiwan's epidemic prevention, as well as possible future contributions to epidemic prevention, including screening and vaccine development.

    The fifth season of "Taiwan Revealed will air in Asia-Pacific countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia starting Oct. 11
