|AI4VN brought together Vietnam’s experts to discuss Vietnam’s AI future|
On August 15-16, the Ministry of Science and Technology entered into a co-operation with the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Hanoi University of Technology and Science to organise AI4VN with the theme “Empowering Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem”, connecting and gathering the trend of development and the tremendous transformative impact of AI.
AI4VN is expected to become one of the foundational motivations to promote the spread and development of AI technology through connecting the internal ecosystem components from research institutes, universities, and tech startups to the AI community.

In his opening speech at the event, Bui The Duy, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, said that AI is finding its way into people’s daily life, replacing much of the manual work in labour-intensive fields. The largest and most developed countries have their own development strategies for AI, placing this technology at the core of their economic growth.
In recent years, Vietnam’s AI industry has made remarkable progress, which is most evident in the production of goods with high levels of AI. However, Vietnam faces some of the most common challenges across the globe, such as the lack of big databases, resources, and the number of enterprises working on AI.
This year’s AI4VN brings together hundreds of Vietnamese experts in the field of domestic and foreign AI to shape the development of the AI industry in Vietnam.
AI is considered one of the core technologies for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Many countries began to recognise the inevitable trend of development and the tremendous transformative impact of AI in all aspects of social life.
|In a presentation about Taiwan’s AI era, Dr Hsu Hui Huang from Tam Khang University shared about how Taiwan rose as a major AI market in Asia. “We invest heavily in AI technology through building research centres such as AI Academy, supporting organisations, or AI communities,” he said, adding that Vietnam could absolutely follow “Taiwan’s AI road”.|
