AI Day 2023, organized collaboratively by VinAI and the New Turing Institute will spotlight applications in Natural Language Processing (NLP), image processing, and Machine Learning (ML), with a specific focus on transcending academic boundaries to provide practical insights into AI’s role in business and daily life. The aim is to facilitate collaborative opportunities between enterprises, entrepreneurs, and investors.
As we continue to witness the incredible growth and impact of Generative AI applying in every corner of reality, we are proud to announce the return of Vietnam’s most significant AI event: AI Day 2023, admiring the influencing of GenAI in research and Business.
AI Day 2023 is not just an event; it’s a vision brought to life. VinAI, in collaboration with the New Turing Institute, is hosting AI Day to bring together the brightest minds in the AI industry. Under the theme of “Empower AI: Reality Reimagined,” AI Day 2023, endorsed by the National Innovation Center (NIC), seeks to serve as a vital nexus for researchers, industry stakeholders, investors, and professionals. It aims to foster connections and bridge the divide between AI professionals and the broader public. This assembly spotlights the transformative role of GenAI in daily life and presents a wide array of opportunities for its integration across various economic and societal sectors in Vietnam.
AI Day 2023 boasts an impressive lineup of global experts who are pushing the boundaries of AI. It is with great excitement that we announce the online participation of Mr. Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, who played a pivotal role in popularizing ChatGPT as an iconic representation of GenAI in 2023. The program will also feature esteemed professors and experts from prestigious institutions such as Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), and New York University (NYU), including renowned names like:
