NDO – The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has approved a programme on artificial intelligence (AI) research and development in the city for the 2020-2030 period.

The programme aims to step up AI research, development and application to make it an important technological industry of Vietnam.

It has set a target of concluding projects on building digital infrastructure and AI-related policies, and establishing centres for AI research, technology transfer, and human resources between 2021 and 2025.

Meanwhile, the city has also set the target of raising the number of AI research papers and patents by 20 percent in the period.

The City People's Committee encourages an increase in the number of start-ups, small and medium enterprises and increases total investment in artificial intelligence.

In addition, businesses are being encouraged to deploy the application of artificial intelligence in digital transformation to promote internal strengths and increase competitiveness.

The city focuses on building products and applying artificial intelligence with practical value, building Ho Chi Minh City into the centre of Vietnam and the region for research, development, and transfer of applications in artificial intelligence.
