Viet Nam holds huge potential in the application and development of new technologies amid the wide utilisation of robot and artificial intelligence (AI) in daily life activities.

Speaking at a recent webinar on media response and pioneering technologies, OhmniLabs CEO Thuc Vu said the COVID-19 pandemic has fostered the development of the robotics industry.

In the future, robot can facilitate remote travel as tourists may stay in Viet Nam and shop in Paris, visit a museum in New York and join a meeting in Tokyo, he said, expressing his hope that ‘Made-in-Viet Nam’ robot may earn international recognition in terms of technology.

Bui Hai Hung, head of VinAI Research, a member of Vingroup, said that with Viet Nam’s development and potential in human resources, there are plenty of room for AI's growth in the coming time.

He hailed ability of young Vietnamese as they are able to swiftly grasp new technologies and fully engage in international studies in a short period of time. This is a positive sign for Viet Nam’s AI development capacity, he added.

For his part, Thieu Phuong Nam, CEO of Qualcomm Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia, underlined that Viet Nam is turning into an innovative hub in Southeast Asia.

Viet Nam is also the third nation that Qualcomm has chosen to arrange its innovation challenge for tech startups, as the firm has realised potential and ability of tech workers in the Southeast Asian nation.

The application of advanced technology is key for economic growth amid the shift toward higher-value-added activities, Nam said.

He believed that new technologies such as AI, 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) will help countries move from manufacturing to innovation economy.
