|On the cover: On the cover: Nourished by the gigantic data and empowered by increasing computing facilities, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is setting us free from many burdensome routines. With AI muscles, we have become faster and smarter than ever. AI is reshaping the future of industries and our lives, enabling paradigm shifts in many disciplines of science and even paving the road to the metaverse. But scientists are still facing endless choices to navigate their innovation processes as previously. Meanwhile, collaborations are urgently needed amongst researchers from multidisciplinary studies. So we do hope the shared values of truth, righteousness, and peace can be cherished deeply to make our blue planet a better place for the whole ecosystem.|

Electro-responsive actuators (ERAs) hold great promise for cutting-edge applications in e-skins, soft robots, unmanned flight, and in vivo surgery devices due to the advantages of fast response, precise control, programmable deformation, and the ease of integration with control circuits. Recently, considering the excellent physical/chemical/mechanical properties (e.g., high carrier mobility, strong mechanical strength, outstanding thermal conductivity, high specific surface area, flexibility, and transparency), graphene and its derivatives have emerged as an appealing material in developing ERAs.
