The main theme of the industrial revolution 4.0 is cyber-physical systems; systems in which sensing, computation, networking and physical processes are connected, controlled and monitored by algorithms.

THE Rainforest Fringe Festival has become a firm fixture on Kuching's calendar of events ever since it burst onto the scene in 2017. Back for its third edition this past week, the festival was packed with all manner of events and activities related to arts, culture and heritage, from music and storytelling performances to exhibitions, talks and art installations. In short, there were so many things happening and no time to see them all, but what I did manage to catch was generally worthwhile. For a start, the "Over Sarawak" exhibition by photojournalist David ST Loh at the UOB Building displayed some striking shots of notable landmarks and less-well-known scenes in Sarawak, including a number of images taken directly from above with a drone. I had the opportunity to interview…

eSports took a step into the sporting mainstream on Thursday as it made its debut at the Southeast Asian Games, becoming a medal event for the first time at an Olympic-recognised multi-sport competition.
