NDO - Tech giant FPT will host the largest technology event to mark its 30th anniversary, with the use of artificial intelligence (AI) as the master of ceremony, and bring guests on a journey to a virtual reality space station.

The information was released at a press brief in Hanoi on September 6 to announce the FPT Techday event, to be held on September 12 at the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi, to mark its 30 years of development.

Le Hong Viet, FPT's Chief Technology Officer, said that at the upcoming event, FPT will bring the latest technologies, such as virtual reality, AI and big data to customers, helping them to not only watch and listen but also experience it live.
