Technologies, such as AI, Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud, Cryptocurrency, Cybersecurity, FinTech, IoT, 5G, VR/AR, Quantum Computing, etc., are not just for technologists but also for every one of us in all levels across different industries.

Digital Literacy becomes the most needed skill for everyone in the digital economy.
