The establishment of the first AI center is part of the National Strategy on AI research, development, and application by 2030.

Under the strategy, Viet Nam expects to become a center for innovation and development of AI solutions and applications in the Southeast Asian region and the world in the next decade.

The country aims to build 10 AI brands of high prestige in the region, develop three national centers on big data and high performance computing, and connect big data and high performance computing centers nationwide into a network and form 50 open datasets in all socio-economic fields to better serve AI research, development and application.

The nation will set up three national innovative centers on AI, and have at least one representative in the list of ASEAN’s 20 leading R&D and training facilities in this sphere./.
