JAKARTA - Indonesia and Oman have established a strategic partnership in the technology sector. In particular, in the utilization and development of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies through linguistic platforms.

"Apart from the economic benefits of a strategic partnership, I believe the two countries can work together well. The people of the two countries are peace-loving and friendly people with a spirit of humanity and future technology," said the Indonesian Ambassador to Oman, Mohamad Irzan Djohan, as quoted from Antara.

Irzan considered that cooperation in the technology sector was strategic because he was given the digital development of the two countries. Some of the activities of the Indonesian and Omani people are currently connected to the internet.

On the other hand, innovation in Indonesia and Oman are still developing together. Ambassador Irzan Djohan is also optimistic that companies and investors from Oman will be interested in establishing strategic partnerships with Indonesian companies because the two countries share many similarities.

Moreover, Indonesia in the last more than one decade has experienced a digital transformation that has been getting better as shown by human interaction, learning, and transactions through the use of digital technology.

One form of partnership between Indonesia and Oman is seen from Salam Tech, which is a joint venture created by the collaboration between Awadah Group Indonesia and Emerging Technology Company Oman (ETCO). The signing of the cooperation between the two parties was carried out at the end of December 2020.

Both are currently creating linguistic applications based on artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR). The application allows users to learn Arabic with AR technology.

"There are many potential uses for AR, such as for education where we can interact with historical figures, or for example Indonesian presidents, past and present," said Daniel Surya as Chairman of the WIR Group in a virtual press conference.

He hopes that this application can become a medium of learning and cultural exchange between the younger generations of Indonesia and Oman, who are now more tech-savvy. Moreover, this AR technology, according to Daniel, can be used via mobile devices and also via live webcams on platforms that support AR content.
