The Artificial Intelligence Centre of Thammasat University (Thammasat AI Centre) is thrilled to be a major digital fund-supported initiative. The programme highlights the collaboration between the public and private sectors as well as educational institutions.

The focus of the centre will be research and development including the creation of an ecosystem to achieve a higher worldwide market value and an increase of up to 26 per cent in economic value.

According to Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, Minister of Digital Economy and Society (DES), this Thammasat AI Centre is one of the projects supported by the Digital Economy and Society Development Fund (DE Fund) aims to build an AI learning resource for the public.

“After the Thammasat AI Centre has opened, I believe the public will be aware of the advantages of AI technology, community ecosystem building, and AI as a commercial tool. We intend to promote the further development and usage of AI technology in new applications,” says Chaiwut.

Along with the new AI applications, this also includes consulting and research in AI that can help with commercial and social issues. For the Ministry of Digital, the world has changed dramatically because of new innovations and technological developments, so they are concentrating on encouraging businesses to use AI.

To increase Thailand’s capacity for innovation, they created the National Artificial Intelligence Strategic Plan Development and established the Thammasat AI Centre, which is an example of fostering collaboration between the public, corporate, and academic sectors.

AI, according to Chaiwut, is a technology with a great deal of potential, and he believes that it will have a significant impact on the way people live and conduct business. With cutting-edge technology that can learn, work with patterns and make decisions based on massive volumes of data, AI decisions and operations tend to become more efficient and effective.

As a result of the evolution of hardware, software, and big data, there are new innovations that contribute to the global economy.

Thammasat University President Assoc Prof Gasinee Witoonchart, on the other hand, stated that they have driven new projects to continuously improve its communities’ innovation, knowledge, and digital skills.

In addition to the Thammasat AI Centre, three new projects have been launched, including a prototype integrated medical innovation centre, a learning centre for future entrepreneurial skills, and a metaverse project to build the 5th campus in Metaverse with AI courses for both bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, both online and offline.

They also intend to work with more than 60 organisations to train artificial intelligence innovators and engineers to improve the country’s AI capabilities.

Meanwhile, OpenGov Asia earlier reported that the DES Ministry recently met with Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, Under-Secretary-General of the UN and Executive Secretary of UNESCAP, to talk about how Thailand and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) could work together on information and communication technology (ICT) and digital technology.

The meeting was about ESCAP’s work with the Asia-Pacific Information Expressway Initiatives and how public and private sectors can work together with the Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development to help train people in digital technology.

The fourth industrial revolution (4IR) technology for sustainable development; the trends in new technologies, and breakthroughs in computers were some of the major subjects covered during the meeting.
