DELIVERING THE PROMISED ECONOMIC BENEFITS AND JOBS OF OFFSHORE WIND TO NATIONS
The World Bank Offshore Wind Energy Roadmaps offer great guidance for many SE Asian nations, shedding light on the tens of thousands of jobs and economic prosperity which could be realized by those governments who embrace offshore wind energy.
HOWEVER IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT SE ASIAN GOVERNMENTS CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THAT THE JOBS AND ECONOMIC GAINS PROMISED, ARE DEFINITELY NOT A FOREGONE CONCLUSION.
To realize the tens of thousands of jobs and huge economic benefits promised, SE Asian governments must fully commit to supporting the establishment and development of their own,

AI FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH
There is still much research that needs to be undertaken in order for industry to fully realize the potential of AI, such as,
Data collection and labeling: As mentioned earlier, the development of large and accurate datasets is essential for the training of AI models. However, collecting and labeling data for real-world applications can be challenging and expensive. There is a need to develop new methods for collecting and labeling data that are more efficient and cost-effective.
Algorithm development: There is a need to develop new AI algorithms that are more efficient and robust. Current AI algorithms are often limited in their ability to handle complex tasks or to generalize to new situations. There is a need to develop new algorithms that can overcome these limitations.
Hardware integration: AI algorithms need to be integrated with hardware systems in order to be deployed in real-world applications. This requires the development of new hardware platforms that are capable of running AI algorithms in real time and that are energy-efficient.
Explainability: AI models are often black boxes, meaning that it is difficult to understand how they make decisions. This can make it difficult to trust and deploy AI models in safety-critical applications. There is a need to develop AI models that are more explainable, so that humans can understand how they work.
Fairness: AI models can be biased, meaning that they can make different decisions for different people based on their race, gender, or other factors. This can have a negative impact on people's lives. There is a need to develop AI models that are more fair, so that they make decisions that are unbiased and equitable.
Security: AI systems can be vulnerable to cyberattacks. There is a need to develop AI systems that are more secure, so that they can protect themselves from attacks.
ASPAC Industry Development Consultants is working hard to establish an AI Research Facility in Vietnam, which would work with other AI Research Centers around the world, to further develop AI for industry.
