Simultaneously, it is also one of the largest sources of pollution, accounting for about 22% of the regional carbon 1 dioxide emissions in 2020 , a higher percentage than other regions such as Europe, Asia, or North America.

As we examine the impact and potential of various key technologies in this report, it is important to understand that we are dealing with an interconnected ecosystem that is growing in complexity and scale. Advances in one area, such as Artificial Intelligence or Automation, are fed back and amplified in constructive collaboration with others, such as Big Data or the Internet of Things, resulting in a multiplier effect on value generation.
