Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Human civilization is progressing to the digital era through the development of information technology and the intelligence revolution. Digitization has permeated social and economic life and emerged as a new force for sustainable development and prosperity. It is worth noting that the digital era is characterized by intelligence, integration, sharing, and cooperation while also posing risks of eroding societal norms. It is crucial to analyze the technological logic and social value of the era and evaluate the risks that digital technology may cause to governance systems and development capability. The aim of this Special Issue is to invite academics and practitioners to describe practical experiences and insights about technologies, risks, and sustainability in the face of the digital era. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: (1) Smart cities and sustainable development; (2) Intelligent communities and public participation; (3) Data privacy and information protection; (4) Artificial intelligence and national security; (5) Risk perception and communication; (6) Public health and risk assessment. We encourage interdisciplinary papers from scientists, policy and decision makers, and practitioners who focus on artificial intelligence, risk resilience, and sustainable development. The contributions should stimulate researching processes generally in order to foster an understanding of the comprehensive digital era.
