In Vietnam, AI is increasingly being applied, from a voice-to-text app, a driver monitoring system, a camera to identify people wearing a mask, to a multi-cognitive artificial intelligence platform.
Vietnam has no big gap with the world in AI
According to a forecast by McKinsey Company, by 2030, artificial intelligence (AI) will contribute to the economy by 13 trillion USD, equivalent to 1.2% of global GDP.
In Vietnam, the AI community is considered to have great potential for development. With the combination of a young population, artificial intelligence technology is forecasted to bring many new faces to the Vietnamese economy in the coming years.
In fact, over the years, Vietnam has had specific policies in promoting the development of AI technology application. The most obvious is the fact that the Prime Minister has promulgated the National Strategy on Research, Development and Application of AI to 2030.

The strategy sets out the goal of promoting research, development and application, making AI an important technology field of Vietnam in the 4.0 Revolution, contributing to socio-economic development and gradually bringing Vietnam to the next level, become a bright spot in research, development and application of AI in the region and in the world.
Most recently, at AI Summit 2022, important information was pointed out by the speakers. From a research perspective, according to an international ranking, Vietnam is currently ranked 26th in the world in terms of AI research capacity.
In Southeast Asia, Vietnam and Singapore are currently two countries in this ranking. Research on artificial intelligence in the country is assessed to be not too far away from European countries such as Poland, Spain…

A number of large enterprises have built and developed AI Research and Development Centers in Vietnam, attracting many of the world’s leading experts in this field to work. At the same time, there has been a relatively large number of innovative start-ups applying AI technology to new products and services.
These include products and services applying AI technology that have been recognized by the market, such as the intelligent health care monitoring and support system for Vietnamese (VAIPE), voice conversion products Vietnamese into Document (VAIS), Driver Monitoring System (DMS), Surveillance Camera, Face Mask Recognition (HANET AI Camera).

Most recently, VinBigData has just launched the comprehensive multi-cognitive artificial intelligence platform VinBase, supporting Vietnamese businesses to apply AI and Big Data solutions to production and business activities.
This is one of the pioneering platforms in Vietnam in bringing virtual assistants closer to businesses, helping to improve service quality and provide a better experience for customers.
With the emergence of more and more research projects and products applying AI technology, in Vietnam promises to have a force of enterprises capable of competing in the field of AI in the international market.
