|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.|

Global development has been heavily reliant on the overexploitation of natural resources since the Industrial Revolution. With the extensive use of fossil fuels, deforestation, and other forms of land-use change, anthropogenic activities have contributed to the ever-increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere, causing global climate change. In response to the worsening global climate change, achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 is the most pressing task on the planet. To this end, it is of utmost importance and a significant challenge to reform the current production systems to reduce GHG emissions and promote the capture of CO2 from the atmosphere.
