Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ta Hai Tung, Head of the Institute of Information and Communication Technology under the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, said that in the long term, the center will be the place to connect domestic and foreign AI operators to deploy basic research to create core "made in Vietnam" technologies. “The center also focuses on developing AI applications in different industries and fields to accelerate the digital transformation and develop the 4.0 Industrial Revolution in Vietnam,” he went on to say.

Accordingly, the Hanoi University of Science and Technology and its partner, NAVER Group, will jointly invest in the construction and operation of the center, aiming to develop specialized background research and train highly qualified human resources in the field of AI.

Currently, the center has more than 50 scientists from Hanoi University of Science and Technology and a number of experts from schools, institutes and technology groups in fields related to AI and its application.

The establishment of the center is part of the national strategy for AI research, development and application until 2030. Accordingly, Vietnam aims to become an innovation hub for creating and developing AI solutions and applications in the ASEAN region as well as in the world.

To do this, Vietnam must build 10 prestigious AI brands in the region, and develop 3 national centers for big data storage and high-performance computing./.
