Time to level up with AI, DTI tells companies

    What was once the domain of science fiction films is now becoming a reality, with no less than the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) advising businesses to place artificial intelligence (AI) at the center of their modernization efforts in order to remain competitive in the post-pandemic period.

    MANILA — The DTI made this appeal when it announced an event on artificial intelligence to increase competitiveness on October 27.

    “Initiatives such as AI must be harnessed and be placed at the core of all our endeavors to ensure that we will not only overcome overwhelming obstacles but also guarantee that our industries will remain adaptable (and ensure that) they thrive moving forward,” Trade undersecretary Rafaelita M. Aldaba said.

    The trade and industry agency stated that the event will assist industries in developing AI-enabled business strategies.

    “This occasion will also showcase some the country’s experts in the field of AI who will deepen and broaden our understanding and appreciation of this new technology,” the DTI said in a statement.

    “Through this event, a productive and constructive engagement is envisaged to revolve around aspects of paramount importance such as the potential of the envisioned National Center for AI research; experiences and insights on the adoption of AI by businesses, especially during the pandemic; and, critical issues surrounding AI particularly those that are related to ethics, governance and regulation,” it added.
