FOUNDER & CHAIRMAN, HSU EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION, FORT WALTON BEACH
Hsu is founder of three technology and avionics companies. He also manages his educational foundation that promotes STEM programs and provides scholarships for high school and college students.
Hsu says the state’s political and academic leaders should devote more money and effort to develop world-class high-tech institutions. Doing so, he adds, will help the state meet the constant challenge of attracting and retaining top-shelf national and international talent. Hsu also believes Florida businesses face inevitable and disruptive changes from the impact of robotics, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles. “There are a lot of jobs that won’t exist in Florida over the next five or 10 years because of robots, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles,” says Hsu.
