3.1) Digital Agriculture for Farmers and OTOP Makers: AIS works with the public and private sectors to improve the quality of living of farmers and OTOP makers. For example, we collaborate with The Digital Economy Promotion Agency to organize Entrepreneur Development Program in Technology and Digital Innovation by introducing digital technology for commercial use targeting Community Enterprise, OTOP, and SMEs. The Office of Digital Economy Promotion courteously provides database of OTOP makers accessible through Channel Management System developed by ODEP and linked with E-Marketplace by AIS.

Application Farmsuk, an AIS brainchild, is developed as a trading platform for farmers, millers and customers. The application will benefit farmers in reducing distribution cost, gaining access to indigenous knowledge and local intellects, earning about packaging and market differentiation, and adding value to their produce with IoT devices. Application Farmsuk will also promote direct sales between farmers and customers, increasing customer confidence and convenience.
3.2) Digital Public Health: AIS sees an opportunity in making public healthcare in Thailand more efficient. We realize that preventive actions are in fact more important than treatments. Introducing OrSorMor Online, an AIS application designed to be a proactive communication tool for healthcare practitioners especially doctors and nurses working at Tambon Health Promoting Hospitals (THPH) located in every province and public-health volunteers stationing in villages, an example of AIS using digital innovation to help Thai people access doctors and healthcare easier and faster.
