In the interview with Fulbright’s Director of Communications, Bui Viet Lam, Dr. Christopher Cuong Nguyen shared his point of view on the outlook of AI and the prospects of human’s roles in the AI era.
According to Dr. Christopher Cuong Nguyen, with respect to a lot the automation capabilities that AI represents, it can bring some large-scale displacement in terms of the labor force. However, there will always be a role for human beings in the AI era.
“A lot of young people are quite aware of computing capabilities and hackers. They can apply their skills and their ambitions towards this particular technology.
I think that Vietnam has an opportunity and really the challenge to leapfrog and bypass that and invest its human resources in the machine learning era directly,” he shared.
