|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.|

|New physical science behind climate change: What does IPCC AR6 tell us?|
Spatial patterns of change in annual average near-surface temperature at 1.5¡ãC, 2¡ãC, 3¡ãC, and 4¡ãC of global warming relative to the period 1850¨C1900.
The UN Panel on Climate Change released its sixth assessment report from Working Group I in August. The new report represents a gold standard for our current understanding of climate science.1 The new physical science assessments are based on improved observational datasets to assess historical warming as well as progress in scientific understanding of the response of the climate system to human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. Relative to AR5, eight aspects of key new findings can be laid out.
