With the embracing of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), both academe and industry have roles in the advancement of a wide range of technologies. The adoption of Smarter Devices, Internet of Things (IoT), Robot Process Automation, Edge Computing and Digital Transformation has made its development vital in improvements in various industries and businesses.

The continued progress in Datafication, Business Analytics, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning allows society to break new ground in different areas, from education, to business decision making, to even ethics-related discussion in the continued use of these technologies.

In developing Augmented, Virtual, and Extended Reality technologies, the enrichment of our digital experiences continues well into the entertainment, and the education space. The use of such dynamic forms of media can enhance learning courses through providing immersive experiences be it in traditional course deliveries to training-based courses such as driving.
