The Ministry of Information and Communications coordinated with the People's Committee of Thừa Thiên – Huế Province and the World Bank to organise an international conference on open data and AI for economic growth in Huế City on Thursday.
The conference aims to exchange and comment on the role of open data and the development trend of artificial intelligence (AI) in the world, thereby identifying challenges, proposing specific actions to develop open data, promote the development and application of AI to create a driving force for economic growth.
This year was the year of National Digital Data in Việt Nam, said Dũng.
Currently, around the world, governments have realised that public data is a valuable resource and needs to be exploited effectively.
