Jakarta (ANTARA) - Vice President Ma'ruf Amin affirmed that artificial intelligence (AI) is a solution for Indonesia to emerge as a major player in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 rather than being a market in the era.

"Artificial intelligence is a solution for the country. Hence, it would not only be a market but also a player in the Industrial Revolution 4.0," Amin remarked at the Unika Atma Jaya campus here on Monday.

AI can be used to develop new business models, he affirmed.

The vice president believes that development in future would be affected by disruption in various sectors of public life.

"The increased use of AI, big data, and information and communication technology will propel the industry to grow not in a linear manner but exponentially," he noted while highlighting the need for close cooperation between universities and the industrial sector.

To become a player in the industrial revolution, Indonesia will also require sufficient qualified human resources, Amin noted.

According to the Central Bureau of Statistic (BPS) data in February, of the total 137.90 million workers, only 14.22 million, or some 10.3 percent, were college graduates.
