Malaysia is lagging behind regional peers in AI adoption, said Mohammad Radzi, executive director of G3 Global, said during a Fireside Chat at ORIGIN, held during Malaysia Tech Week 2019.
Chinese AI company SenseTime is ramping up efforts to expand overseas presence with its latest deal to help build Malaysia’s first AI research park in a partnership with local AI company G3 Global.
The park will also include an exhibition zone in which visitors can see AI in action.
“AI is burgeoning in Malaysia so we choose a partner who not only can grow local companies but at the same time spur AI innovation within Malaysia” said Radzi.
The AI park also plans to be an export centre, where Malaysian AI solutions can be exported to other countries, said Radzi.
“The AI park will be an area where visitors, not just industry professionals, can visit to experience AI solutions first hand,” said Radzi, describing a park where autonomous vehicles operate on the road and visitors can check into a condominium equipped with smart home system.
