The proliferation of technological development has led to a revolution in the way people communicate. We will explore the next level of human communication by exploring neurotechnology, an innovation driven by enabling high-end technologies as a basis of communicating between people and computers. In the past information society, the common practice was to collect information via the network and have it analyzed by humans; now people, things, and systems are all connected in cyberspace and optimal results obtained by artificial intelligence (AI) exceeding the capabilities of humans are fed back to physical space. This process brings new value to industry and society in ways not previously possible.

In short, emerging neurotechnologies and the World Wide Web’s evolutionary process have the potential to allow access to at least some components of mental information as well as the power to effect modified business practices and societal empowerment. While these advances can be greatly beneficial for individuals and society, they also have the potential to be misused, creating unprecedented threats to the freedom of thought, freedom of expression, and to individuals’ capacity to self-determination behavior.

Thus, the broad themes for this exploration and examination include, but are not limited to :

  • Communication industry 5.0 and beyond
  • Social-cultural 5.0 and the implications
  • The digitization of content; competencies and Ethics
  • Governance 5.0 politics and good public governance
  • Entrepreneurship 5.0
  • Special issues (global, national, or local level)
