According to a recent survey by IT market research and advisory firm IDC titled IDC Asia/Pacific Enterprise Cognitive/AI says that AI adoption in Southeast Asia is on the rise, with 34% of organisations in Malaysia revealing plans to adopt AI in the next two years.
Malaysia also placed fourth with 8.1% of all companies being open to the adoption and integration of artificial intelligence into their operations.
It is said that Malaysia’s increasing focus on AI is brought by its smart cities initiatives and applications in public safety and intelligent transportation. However, a these initiatives would need more time to unfold and solidify, and most Malaysian organizations are hesitant about the costs and the quality of the model.
