Intelligent systems are emerging in response to the convergence of the virtual and physical worlds through the development of autonomous systems, wearable technologies, robotic co-workers, smart devices, drone technology, augmented reality, intelligent houses, digital twins, intelligent manufacturing, and many other applications. Application of these technologies will affect almost all aspects of socio-economic life and will have profound implications for many areas including manufacturing, transportation, commerce, employment, healthcare, government, legal, security, privacy, and education.

The production and storage of unprecedented quantities of data, the abundance of computational resources and the enormous industrial interest and investment enable AI to take over many tasks, some of which are currently being done by humans. AI even enables solving problems that were previously unthinkable to tackle and is thus expected to reshape society, economy and governance.
