According to the MoST, Vietnam-Australia Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Network was launched to help promote the national strategy on AI.
The network will gather individuals, businesses, and organizations working in AI in Việt Nam to cooperate with Australian partners.
The network, in collaboration with FISU Club, which consists of members from faculties, institutes, and training schools in information technology, was also accompanied by ASUS4 Innovation, a development assistance program worth AU$13.5 million to strengthen innovation in Vietnam.
According to the network, AI has been applied in a number of industries in the country such as e-commerce with 29 percent, transportation and logistics 18 percent, education 13 percent, real estate 12 percent, finance 11 percent, and agriculture 5 percent.
The network said that with 372 AI patent applications, Vietnam ranked second in ASEAN and was continuously publishing more and more in the area.
The network said demand for human resources for ICT and AI in Vietnam was highly developed and estimated about 1 million ICT personnel would be needed in the country by 2030.
However, there are still challenges when applying AI to socioeconomic sectors, including weak infrastructure and information for development, and inefficient data storage and sharing.
It also said the AI market in Vietnam was still small, with 10 big corporations -- FPT, Viettel, CMC, VNG, VNPT, VinGroup, Google, Amazon, NVIDIA, and IBM -- some venture capital funds and 65 startups but almost no open platforms for AI with Vietnamese characteristics.
The network is initially expected to create opportunities for members to cooperate with Australian partners to update the situation of artificial intelligence in the country and beyond.
The MoST will expand cooperation to many other countries and aim to build a sustainable artificial intelligence community with many computer science development activities.
MoST Deputy Minister Bui The Duy said: “The Vietnam-Australia AI network is a premise for a sustainable community of cooperation in AI in Viet Nam, as well as internationally in the future."
"We look forward to learning from Australia as well as other countries to create a favorable environment for AI development in Việt Nam, realizing the ambitious goal set out in the National Strategy on Artificial Intelligence - bringing Việt Nam to the top four of ASEAN and top 50 leading countries in the world in research, development, and application of artificial intelligence by 2030."
The network plans to create opportunities for human resources in AI, connect the research community, and access information on policies and AI programs.
Participating partners can support connecting experts to find solutions for AI applications, and connect domestic and foreign enterprises to learn from experience in technology deployment and transfer, supply, and demand for AI solutions.
The MoST is calling on all individuals and organizations working AI in Việt Nam to join the network, targeting at least 100 businesses and 1,000 individuals to join the network Facebook group.
