—Thailand has long been trapped by middle income,
inequality, and imbalance, the “Digital Economy Policy” has
therefore officially been announced as a national agenda by the
Thai government in order to increase the GDP and shift the
country towards the fourth industry evolution so-called
“Thailand 4.0”. Although digital technologies have been welldeveloped
and highly diversified in various fields, there are few
rigid frameworks on integrating and utilizing digital
technologies to enable a success in digital economy policy
under unique challenges in Thai contexts. Consequently, this
paper focuses on an emerging paradigm on an Internet-of-X
(IoX) concept where X separately represents three features, i.e.
(i) physical things, (ii) services, and (iii) data. In addition, this
paper also introduces a holistic architecture of an Internet of
AI-Centric (IoAIC), which is particularly defined as “an
approach that utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an essential
computational core in major components of the Internet-of-X
architecture in order to leverage the existing IoX ecosystem in
terms of functionality and performance”. Such IoAIC
conceptual framework could be further recommended to
cooperates, enterprises, and government agencies for
supporting the concrete implementation of a roadmap and
strategies of Thailand Digital Economy towards a hub country
in South East Asia region.
