Vietnam improves its use of artificial intelligence in public services
Amazing news! Vietnam has jumped 14 places in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) Readiness Index 2021 and now ranks 6th in ASEAN. This means that compared to 2020, Vietnam is much better prepared with the right tools and environment to make use of AI to improve public service and gain economic advantages.
In January 2021 the Government of Vietnam issued a national strategy on research, development and application of AI until 2030. Australia’s #Aus4Innovation program has been in close cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology for this AI endeavour since July 2020 and also supported an AI COVID-19 recovery effort. This included supporting the dissemination of Vietnam’s National AI Strategy and AI accelerator programs in 2021 to consolidate and further the agenda for AI in Vietnam.
The “Government AI Readiness Index 2021” is compiled by Oxford Insights and Canada’s International Development Research Centre. The index ranks 160 countries by how prepared their governments are to use AI in public services based on 42 indicators across three pillars: Government, Technology sector, and Data & Infrastructure. Vietnam’s average score is 51.82, higher than the global average of 47.42.
