Special Issue Information

Survival, though predating Humans' need to build and innovate is driven by their dependence on resources and familiarity with their surroundings. Therefore, survival has largely determined one's future. Thus, understanding his choices and the implications of each opportunity demands his desires and inspires innovation. Each is molded and sold to prospective customers. Humans have always created tools, techniques, or services without prior implementation, which was emerging. Before any new technology, a transition has allowed humans to adapt to their choices. Therefore, familiarity builds over time. This then leads to a comprehension of the tools needed to survive, which have eventually made collective groups productive and competitive. Competition has heightened the demand for all tech-related matters. Technological adoption has led to innovative practices, prompting a desire to change and enhance various business structures. As technological expectations evolve, academia, industry, and government are increasingly seeking to collaborate. The rising expectations are creating a demand for technologists proficient in both old and new technology to support and prepare modern organizations. Modern companies can no longer be “boxed in” into a predefined operation category, but rather seek clarity on technology, when to use it, and its implications. Due to this, “emerging technologies” have emerged.

Students, researchers, and R&D experts from academia and industry working in theoretical and empirical research areas are targeted by this special issue.
