The strategy aims at intensifying AI research, development and application to make it an important technological industry of the country.
By 2030, Vietnam will become a center for innovation and development of AI solutions and applications in the Southeast Asian region and the world. The country is expected to build 10 AI brands of high prestige in the region, develop three national centers for big data and high-performance computing and connect these centers to a network. In addition, some 50 open datasets will be formulated and interconnected among different economic sectors in favor of AI research, development, and application.
Under the strategy, Vietnam will set up three national innovative centers for AI and have at least one representative on the list of ASEAN’s 20 leading R&D and training facilities in this sphere.
To achieve these goals, the strategy puts forward a number of orientations, such as building a legal framework on AI, developing an AI ecosystem, and boosting the application of AI and international cooperation in the field.- (VLLF)
