Please meet the fifth issue of the Information Society journal for 2020

In this issue we have posted ten articles by authors from Baku, Voronezh, Yekaterinburg, Moscow and St. Petersburg, dedicated to various aspects of digitalization.

This is the impact of digital technologies on the development of international trade (section “Digital Economy”), and a possible strategy for the safe and responsible implementation of artificial intelligence based on a human-centered approach (the section “The Human in the Information Society”), and the creation of the informational and technological basis of Justice of Peace in the region and the use of big data analytics to model the public sector of the future (under the heading “Information Society and State Power”).

The section “Education in the Information Society” examines the problems and prospects for the development of literacy in the field of working with data as one of the basic digital competencies, the use of digital educational technologies during the coronavirus pandemic, and the introduction of digital technologies in military education.

The thematic section “Trust and Security in the Information Society” has been supplemented with interesting material on the use of folklore to identify and prevent the propaganda of crimes and violent acts.

The section “Information Society and Mass Media” contains an article on the transformation of print media in accordance with the business models of the platform economy. And in the section “Measuring the Information Society”, based on the results of market monitoring, the benefits associated with the use of digital technologies in Russian manufacturing enterprises are investigated. For the first time in the history of the journal, we have published an article in English and intend to continue this practice.

All materials of the issue are freely available on the new digital platform of the journal (texts primarily in Russian with English metadata and abstracts).
