Enhancing Corporate Competitiveness in Industry 4.0

Posted: Thursday, April 19, 2018

Robots, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and the Internet of Things, among others, are mainstream technological trends in the Fourth Industrial Revolution that help Vietnamese businesses to raise their production level and competitiveness, according to experts.

In the framework of the project “Enhancing corporate competitiveness through innovation and technology in Fourth Industrial Revolution”, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in cooperation with technology group Solomon, one of leading technology companies in Taiwan, held the Workshop - Presentation in Fourth Industrial Revolution: Internet of things - Robots - Artificial Intelligence, in Hanoi. Distinguished attendants included VCCI leaders, representatives from the High Tech Bureau under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Solomon Technology Group and businesses in Hanoi and surrounding areas.

The programme aims to communicate and support the awareness of the business community in Vietnam of inevitable transformation of production and business methods relating to the Fourth Industrial Revolution in general and the IoT era in particular. At the same time, it cooperates with domestic and foreign partners and provides solutions for automation, robotics and artificial intelligence for the business community in a developed industrial landscape of Vietnam towards creativity and sustainability.

At the conference, many delegates said that the boom of Industry 4.0 promises to bring new business opportunities for the business community. This revolution is expected to have a strong impact on industries such as manufacturing, automation, transportation, finance - banking, education, healthcare and agriculture. This new wave of technology will help enterprises improve their production capacity, innovate products and services, reduce fuel consumption, production costs and better serve customers’ demands.

Mr Nguyen Quang Vinh, General Secretary of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), emphasised that the boom of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will bring the business community (Vietnam) new business opportunities. What matters is how to find right directions and do good business, an open topic for both employers and regulators in Vietnam. He said that the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have a strong impact on such industries as manufacturing, automation, transportation, finance - banking, education, healthcare and agriculture. This new wave of technology will help enterprises improve their production capacity, innovate products and services, reduce fuel consumption, production costs and better serve customers’ demands.

Sharing this viewpoint, Mr Dao Ngoc Chien, Deputy General Director of High Technology Bureau under the Ministry of Science and Technology, mentioned the strengthened capacity to approach the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the spirit of the Prime Minister’s Directive 16. He added that this is the time for the Government to show more drastic resolution and take action to drive up the national development with spectacular breakthroughs and growth to grasp opportunities derived from the Fourth Industrial Revolution and to catch up with advanced countries in the world. The Ministry of Science and Technology is strengthening cooperation with related entities to support businesses to successfully translate this revolution into reality.

Remarking on Industry 4.0 advantages, Mr Nguyen Xuan Loc, Technical Director of Solomon Technology Group, said that the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a big picture and his group mainly introduces solutions to raise labour productivity. By thoroughly utilising deep learning technology, Solomon Technology Group has launched a complete three-dimensional image processing system. The Solomon AccuPick solution with a three-dimensional image processing system enables robots to automatically recognise and locate objects with high precision over a short period of time. This solution provides significant performance gains that help reduce the burden of work that requires human judgement and intensive work.

Citing evidence for special features of these systems, previous 3D image processing systems could only work effectively with commonly simple shapes such as cubes, cuboids, spheres and cylinders and could not function in low-light or blind environment. By combining advanced artificial intelligence technologies into a 3D image processing system, AccuPick addresses these limitations. It can recognise complex shapes even when they are located in dark corners or hidden by overlapping parts. Thanks to these advantages, AccuPick solutions have been trusted for use by a variety of industries such as automobile, manufacturing, food, beverage, medicine and logistics.

After the workshop, businesses had the opportunity to meet and discuss with experts and solutions providers from Solomon Technology Group in a talkshow on the Fourth Industrial Revolution and technological solutions in the global economy.

At the workshop, Vietnamese businesses also expressed their wish to cooperate with domestic and foreign companies and partners in providing solutions for automation, robotics and artificial intelligence because their resources, management experience and personnel capable of operating high-tech machines are still weak for the time being.
