With an overall score of 51.82 out of 100, Vietnam ranked 6th in the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN). This is the first year its score has surpassed the global average of 47.42.
Ly Hoang Tung, deputy head of the High Technology Department under the Ministry of Science and Technology, said the evaluation and construction of the index are based on many factors such as human resource training, technology, application, and especially the emergence of a national strategy on AI.
The report highlighted the importance of national AI strategies, stating that Indonesia and Vietnam have both released their own strategy and scored the maximum point for the 2021 vision.
