Vietnam has a shortage of artificial intelligence experts


Vietnam’s artificial intelligence is forecasted to soon rise to new heights. This is a great aspiration, as well as a motivation for creative ideas and thinking outside the box.

Challenges to develop Artificial Intelligence in Vietnam

Technological powers have long built their own Artificial Intelligence (AI) development strategies, taking this technology as the core to accelerate economic development.

AI is at the heart of the global technology world and is invested and developed by governments around the world. Vietnam is no exception to this development trend.

According to Professor Nguyen Thanh Thuy (University of Technology – VNU) – Vice President of the national program on Science and Technology 4.0, by 2030, the global artificial intelligence market size will fall to about 15.7 trillion USD. .

In which, China accounts for 7 trillion USD, equivalent to 45% of this market. North America accounts for only about $3.7 trillion, half that of China. Next is the group of Nordic countries, developed countries in Asia, Southern Europe and South America.

In Vietnam, according to experts at the Workshop “Artificial Intelligence and Humans: Multidimensional Impacts of a Technological Revolution”, artificial intelligence is developing rapidly and gradually affirming that is a pillar technology, a breakthrough in the fourth industrial revolution.

Over the past few years, many businesses and organizations have started to develop and apply AI in various fields including education, information – communication, business, commerce, health care – care services. health… not only gradually dominate the market but also make huge profits.

In early 2021, the Prime Minister issued the National Strategy on Research, Development and Application of AI to 2030 with the goal of bringing Vietnam into the top four groups of ASEAN countries in the field of artificial intelligence. to successfully build 10 prestigious AI brands in the region.

In recent years, Vietnam’s AI industry has made remarkable progress with the increasing presence of AI technology in all areas of life. AI and AI application projects attract attention and investment not only from large technology corporations but also as a playground for startups to try and implement new business models.

With the current “rapid” development rate, the field of artificial intelligence in Vietnam is forecasted to rise to new heights soon to join the world in solving the challenges of the century. This is a great aspiration, and also a driving force for innovative ideas of Vietnamese enterprises.

However, in reality, Vietnam is facing many difficulties. To develop AI comprehensively, Vietnam needs to solve problems in state management, policies, legal frameworks, human resources, infrastructure, data infrastructure and how to collect and exploit resources. Big Data (Big Data).

According to Mr. Nguyen Hoang Oanh – Vice President of Vietnam Japan University, AI training disciplines in Vietnam are still young, especially the shortage of experts and lecturers training in this technology. These are also limitations affecting human development in the field of artificial intelligence.

AI has the power to change and reshape the place we live in

According to Ngo Tu Lap – Director of the International Francophonie Institute (IFI), artificial intelligence is an area of ​​fierce competition between great powers as well as new countries like Vietnam to win new opportunities. AI will be an important factor, if not the most important, determining the success of countries in occupying the top position in the world.

Ngo Tu Lap commented that AI is penetrating all aspects of social life and bringing positive results from education, health care, administration to the military. But the AI ​​revolution also has many negative sides.

Specifically, AI will contribute to deepening the development gap between countries, the gap between rich and poor, and increasing inequality in society. Artificial intelligence also makes us worry about privacy and information security.

AI is creeping into the smallest digital activities, changing people’s behavior. The most recent controversy is that the algorithms of social networks are making people slaves of technology.

According to Mr. Ngo Tu Lap, technology can become a boomerang with unforeseeable impact. Artificial intelligence also raises ethical issues, as it blurs the line between machine and human. That’s when machine learning technology allows AI to become increasingly intelligent and even emotional.

“So will AI lead to disaster for humanity? Humanity will have to answer this question together,” Mr. Lap said.

Mr. Pham Hong Quat – Director of Science and Technology Enterprise and Market Development Department suggested whether to form a legal institution for an artificial intelligence society in the future.

Having the same opinion, Mr. Pham Hong Quat – Director of the Department of Market Development and Science and Technology Enterprises (Ministry of Science and Technology) said that if the concept of artificial intelligence is an entity that can replace human This technology is fully functional in terms of intelligence, behavior and the ability to interact with society.

With that in mind, Mr. Quat questioned whether artificial intelligence would create a society of its own. What if AI is getting smarter, but there is no control mechanism?

According to this expert, the advancement of technology can disrupt existing institutions that we cannot even imagine, especially social aspects. Therefore, it is necessary to think about the formation of legal mechanisms or institutions to control the artificial intelligence society in the future.
