The launch formed part of a series of events hosted by the ministry to introduce a selection of “Made in Vietnam” digital platforms contributing to the country’s digital transformation and e-Government building following the programme "National Digital Transformation Programme by 2025, with orientations toward 2030".
Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Thanh Hung said VAIS and Vbee are the two pioneering digital platforms in Vietnam using artificial intelligence to convert speech to text and vice versa.
The VAIS is able to recognize various Vietnamese accents from all northern, central and southern regions with an accuracy rate of up to 95% and immediately produce results at an exceptional speed, Hung said. He added that it can still convert speech to text effectively in a noisy environment or from a long distance.
VAIS has been used by many governmental organizations and press agencies for the past year such as the Offices of the Party Central Committee, the Government and the National Assembly, the Ministry of Information and Communications, and the Hanoi People’s Committee.
Meanwhile, Vbee converts written texts into spoken words with emotions, he continued, it can predict the way a person reads a word, or abbreviations and specific words in the Vietnamese language that no other platform can offer.
