Space Forecasting Centre to Establish in Thailand

#image_title

An agreement for cooperation forecasting research and the creation of the Thailand Space Weather Forecast Centre was signed by the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA) of Thailand and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) of Japan. The Thai space agency and research organisation GISTDA oversees satellites for remote sensing and technology development.

The centre will keep an eye on space anomalies and environmental conditions in Thailand, with ambitions to extend the research to other nations. It will also study how the space environment affects societal infrastructure. Researchers from Thailand will fly to Japan this year to work at the NICT.

Since 2020, GISTDA and NICT have collaborated on space projects. To advance space education in Thailand, the collaboration will also collaborate with institutions of higher learning. In the past, NICT has provided Thailand with space exploration equipment and helped with its installation.

Numerous aspects of daily life can be impacted by space circumstances, including power plant destruction, satellite damage, and GPS interference, among others. Thailand currently lacks a system for forecasting them from space. Hence, through this collaboration, Thailand has the chance to advance its space technology skills and defence potential while reducing the risk of space-related calamities for the Thai people.

Meanwhile, OpenGov Asia earlier reported that the Thammasat University Artificial Intelligence Centre (Thammasat AI Centre) is honoured to be a significant digital fund-supported initiative. The initiative emphasises cooperation between educational institutions and the public and private sectors.

The centre’s focus will be research and development, including the establishment of an ecosystem to improve economic value by up to 26 per cent and to increase the product’s market value globally.

The Thammasat AI Centre is one of the projects backed by the Digital Economy and Society Development Fund (DE Fund), according to Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, Minister of Digital Economy and Society (DES), and it intends to create a public learning resource for AI.

Moreover, to create a service that informs people about calamities, the government has partnered with a well-known texting application. More people will be able to swiftly get emergency warnings thanks to this innovation.

The service will allow people who lead digital lifestyles another means to receive timely notifications. Users who add the messaging app will begin receiving news and updates in the event of an emergency.

On the other side, the service will also provide useful information in case of an emergency, such as emergency numbers, a list of close-by hospitals, disaster-prone areas, and how to prepare. The government anticipates that this new service will reduce fatalities and property damage.

In addition, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society of Thailand has collaborated with all industries to hasten the development of highly skilled digital workers. Thailand’s digital economy may be valued at up to a trillion baht in 2025, according to a multinational technology corporation, giving the country hope that its digital transformation could advance more quickly.

The “Samart Skills” project was launched in cooperation with other government agencies, educational institutions, and the commercial sector. The project’s objective is to support the development of highly trained digital employees, who are essential to the expansion of the digital economy.

It also addresses the issue of individuals having varying degrees of digital literacy. As a result, Thai people were able to obtain the education necessary for finding employment in the market through a private partner who provided scholarships to students.
