NDO - The 2020 Vietnam Artificial Intelligence Festival (AI4VN) opened on November 27 in Ho Chi Minh City with the theme of AI and its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jointly held by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the two-day event will see the attendance of over 500 leading Vietnamese and foreign experts in the field.
