HCM CITY (VNS) — The Software Technology Centre under the FPT Corporation will invest VND400 billion (US$19.04 million) to build an information technology (IT) centre in HCM City for education and research.
The centre received an investment certificate from the HCM City high-tech zone management board late last week.
Board head Le Hoai Quoc said that the project aimed at teaching highly qualified people about scientific research and technology transfer in the IT field.
With the project, FPT will focus on inventing robots, intelligent machines and software [artificial intelligence] as well as developing cloud computing [the delivery of on-demand computing resources over the Internet], network infrastructure and information security.
According to the board, the high-tech zone has attracted two IT projects so far this year, including a centre for research and development of the Microsoft corporation in May. — VNS
