There are several obstacles in developing Conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Indonesia :
1. Have to create data. Because when compared to Indonesian with existing data in English, the resource is very small.
2. The second obstacle is talent. Finding the talent of Engineer Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Indonesia is very difficult
3. The third obstacle is lining and market expectation in Indonesia. Because of shadow people, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can learn on their own.
According to Irzan, the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Indonesia is compared to other countries. When compared with countries such as the US and China, it is still very far away. But when compared to other countries in Southeast Asia it is still good, because the market in Indonesia is more about new things.
