According to Minister of Science and Technology Chu Ng?c Anh Vi?t Nam has advantages in start-up innovation and technological development, especially in AI. With an open business climate and labour force interested in technology, the application of AI in various sectors has made progress, connecting parts of the nation's AI ecosystem.
Not surprisingly, developed countries have developed and published strategies on AI. But very few of these aim at using AI "for good".
As privacy protection grows more important than ever, support for all scenarios is essential for enabling secure, pervasive AI. This is a key component in the MindSpore framework, which can readily adapt to different deployment needs.
Thus, data is the driving force behind AI. AI advances are more likely in countries with open data sources and that promote data sharing.
The first use case and model selected was: "Anticipate potential STP breaks/settlement failures" using AI. This provides failure probability to the securities back-office and was presented and well-received at the Calypso Client Conference in Paris in June this year.
Companies like Microsoft are investing 1 billion USD in AI based companies such as Open AI. Only three countries are reported to be working on developing serious military AI technologies: US, Russia and China due to the fact that it promises military advantage to nation's defensive and offensive military capabilities.
As AI applications take on tasks that previously required human intelligence, ethics becomes increasingly important and financial firms should ensure that their customers, as well as other stakeholders, can trust that they are not mistreated or harmed because of the firm's deployment of AI. When it comes to skills, from the work floor to the board room, people should have a sufficient understanding of the strengths and limitations of the AI-enabled systems they work with.
Given these challenges, it isn't surprising that 98 percent of UAE businesses concede that their organisation has work to do if it is to get the most out of AI.
The collaboration will focus on accelerating the workforce training needs of Microsoft's customers so that more teams have the foundational skills needed to work with AI.
"She really wants to act but the she doesn't like her privacy being invaded," said Ai Ai. "She still needs to learn how to compromise."
The idea of a dystopian future in which humanoid robots take over human jobs as seen in the hit TV series Humans, is what many fear as the future of AI.
