Notes from the Chief Editor

The digital age and technology are omnipresent in all aspects of our daily life, but is education at schools and universities moving at the same speed? Are educational institutions adequately preparing the next digital generation?

Educational establishments are changing curricula to include high tech courses in all majors, from engineering to medicine and even journalism.

The main universities in the USA, Canada and UK are already focusing on this and are integrating artificial intelligence into their systems. One school of thought is that artificial intelligence should not be suggested as an elective course, but rather as a requirement, whatever major students choose.

Furthermore, quantum computing is changing companies, industries and governments - that is why it should be included in any educational program.

Cybersecurity is a must-have for everyone. We are all online and this means our most important data is too. Learning to protect our data privacy should begin along with the most basic learning courses.

Preparing our digital generation is important regardless of the field of study or objectives of the workplace. It would be best to apply this approach now, to prepare the current generation moving forward.
