In 2020, Malaysia has come far in fulfilling its ICT agenda by providing digital services and solutions in various niche areas, including agriculture, medical, education, economic, etc. In aligning towards the IR 4.0, Malaysia that is diverse with rich cultural people (hence: fusion) has come together in contributing towards digital solution within the society. With that, the theme of our symposium for 2020 would be “Inclusivity & Diversity: Digital Interaction towards Digital Society”. Providing today’s technology, is not sufficient with just the production of high-tech, remarkable systems, but also those which solutions people can engage with, feel entrusted to, and gain added-values towards their emotions, feelings and experiences in general. A society that span from young to old generations and with people of disability, how can technology help to cater each needs specifically? At the end of the day we hope to address the interaction of intergenerational and family in the digital society and the impact technology has towards indigenous community.
