The current pandemic has reduced and, in some cases, diminished human activities and interactions, at a personal, city, country, and continental level. At the same time, it highlighted significant flaws in the current usage of technologies and shortcomings that have crippled the infrastructure of major organisations and countries. Similar issues might re-occur in the future, due to other pandemics and/or natural disasters. This Special Issue will present current research and applications in emerging fields that combine Artificial Intelligence with Virtual and Augmented Reality, Big Data, IoT, Physics-Based Machine Learning, major event prediction models and simulation scenarios, amongst other computational and emerging technologies, which could contribute to preventing small or large scale calamities and maintaining the everyday way of life.
