HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese youth believe there are certain technologies that will have a significant impact on their lives, according to survey findings released on Wednesday by Microsoft.
These exciting technologies are Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual/mixed/augmented reality (VR/MR/AR).
Over 1,400 youths were polled across the Asia Pacific region, including 100 from Việt Nam. Other markets involved in the survey were Australia, China, Hong Kong and India, as well as Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and Malaysia, along with New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
IoT ranked as the top technology that Vietnamese youth expect will have the most impact on their lives. In recent years, the confluence of power devices, cloud and data has enabled bold visions on how IoT can be an integrated part of the digital future.
IoT refers to the ever-growing network of physical objects connected to the internet and the communication that occurs between these objects and other devices and systems. This includes everything from street sensors, home appliances, wearables and vehicles.
According to the survey, these are the three scenarios that youth anticipate will bring the biggest improvement to their lives from IoT -- smart homes, smart buildings and traffic systems.
The survey found that youth are looking forward to IoT and other technologies to help them increase productivity, improve physical and mental health and making them more employable.
Vũ Minh Trí, Microsoft Việt Nam CEO, said, “With more than 60 per cent of the world’s youth found in Asia Pacific, this region will be a hotbed for the world’s digital revolution. It is exciting to see how Vietnamese youth are looking forward most to the benefits that future innovations can bring. IoT AI, and VR/MR/AR provide incredible digital transformation opportunities for nations and organisations to carve an exciting new future for all of us.” — VNS
