Launching Vietnam-Australia AI cooperation network

December 20th, 2021


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is believed to play an essential role in socio-economic recovery post-COVID, helping economies become more agile and productive. In Vietnam, with the popularisation of digital transformation, AI development has been emphasised and strategically planned out by the Government.
As part of #Aus4Innovation’s agenda for supporting AI development in Vietnam, the program is sponsoring the development of the Vietnam-Australia AI Cooperation Network. This is a network initiated by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and consists of individuals, businesses and organisations working on AI in Vietnam cooperating with Australian experts and institutions. The network will create opportunities for members to cooperate with Australian partners and stay updated on the situation of AI in Vietnam, Australia and the world.
Last week, Deputy Head of Mission, Australian Embassy Vietnam, Mark Tattersall spoke at the first official event organised by the network – Vietnam-Australia AI Forum. He reaffirmed Australia’s commitment to work with MOST to drive forward the innovation partnership between the two countries. The event drew the attention of speakers from 20 leading enterprises, organisations, institutes and communities in AI and ICT from Vietnam and Australia. You can catch a recording of the event here…
