We are bridging the communities of AI from all over the world by inviting them to contribute for the teaching curriculum & research activities of VietAI learners.
  2. Connect local AI talents and entrepreneurs. We are building a community of AI talents that suits the corporate needs of local and international organizations by connecting our learners to deliver projects and conduct field activities at these partners. Also, VietAI also encourages our learners to become future researchers or startup founders.
  3. Create the best annual AI events in Vietnam. We aim to contribute for the development of the AI field in Vietnam through an annual AI summit, which gathers all stakeholders of the AI community: experts, researchers, practitioners, companies, media, government in Vietnam and all around the world.

The brightest minds in the industry will give you a better perspective on what works for them.
