HCMC – Ericsson and RMIT University signed an agreement on August 18 to launch the RMIT & Ericsson AI Lab on RMIT’s Hanoi campus.
The signing ceremony was graced by Ann Måwe, Swedish ambassador to Vietnam, and Andrew Goledzinowski, Australian ambassador to Vietnam.
This collaborative AI Lab initiative builds upon the existing 5G education partnership between RMIT and Ericsson. The project aims to educate Vietnamese students about 5G and emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, blockchain, cloud computing, and automation.
These efforts will empower RMIT students specializing in science, technology, and engineering to actively contribute to Vietnam’s digital economy and transformation.
The AI Lab partnership is an industrial research and education endeavor focused on applying AI to the Industry 4.0 revolution, facilitated by the rollout of 5G in Vietnam.
Ericsson and RMIT will collaborate with industry, academia, and community partners to develop and implement AI solutions that drive Industry 4.0 adoption across various sectors, such as energy, manufacturing, agriculture, transport, and logistics.
The project aims to enhance Vietnam’s startup and innovation ecosystem, cultivate high-tech human resources, and nurture the future workforce.
Denis Brunetti, head of Ericsson Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos, said that the initiative is poised to “drive and create the next wave of sustained and inclusive socio-economic development in Vietnam, enabled by science, technology and innovation.”
