As we adapt to the new normal brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic, we find technology increasingly embedded in our everyday lives. From the way we communicate to the way we provide care, it is hard to imagine what the world looked like before the pandemic. The dichotomous nature of technology was clearly highlighted by this pandemic. Indeed, while it allowed us to interact during the lockdown, it also became the root of misinformation that sewed confusion into the minds of many.

The constant efforts in advancing technology have transformed how we interact with the world and how we lead our lives. As we become more integrated with technology, we enter an uncharted realm of ethical and moral questions that need to be addressed. What rules and regulations need to be put in place to limit the amount of overreach conducted by bad actors?

On the other hand, technological advances have also opened new possibilities, pushing the limit of what humanity can achieve. For better or for worse, the world is greatly impacted by the rapidly evolving landscape of automation, computation, and information. For instance, technology has propelled the development of better healthcare, allowing us to reimagine a new definition of healthcare.

The cover of this issue depicts the marriage of technology with traditional approaches, neither dominating, but working hand-in-hand to achieve new heights. This complex relationship, though portrayed here as simple, will be the subject of numerous discussions and is much more than meets the eye.
