Chief Executive Officer

VinAI – VinGroup

Dr. Hung H. Bui is the Chief Executive Officer of VinAI – VinGroup, Vietnam. His interests center around the challenging problem of how to make the machine better understand humans—a problem that plays a central part in intelligent assistive technologies, personal assistance, and dialogue management. With his dedicated leadership, in less than four years since its creation, VinAI has become one of the top 20 Artificial Intelligence research companies in the world – the only representative from Southeast Asia.

Before joining VinAI, he was at Google DeepMind, Adobe Research, and Nuance Natural Language Understanding Lab, and also spent almost 10 years at the AI Center, SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute) where he led the multi-institution research team in developing probabilistic inference technologies for understanding user activities during the CALO project (at the time, the largest AI project in history, also known as the project that spun off Siri). Going further back in time, he was an assistant professor at Curtin University, Australia (2000 – 2003), Ph.D. graduate in computer science (Curtin, 1998).
