Singapore, Singapore, November 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –
The new book “IQ, EQ, DQ: New Intelligence in the AI Age” published by Dr. Yuhyun Park, a world-renowned expert in digital skills and digital security, discusses highly relevant issues such as:
“How should parents handle their children’s extended screen time with home-based learning?”
“Why did Facebook (now Meta) have to stop developing the children’s version of Instagram?”
“What digital skills do companies want their employees to have?”
“How does a government develop a digital skills education for lifelong learning?”
“Is China’s gambling ban a real decision for children?”
As the creator of Digital Intelligence (DQ), which is now the global standard for digital and digital skills, Dr Park touches on a wide range of topics at the intersection of technology, ethics and education: from parents’ most pressing concerns, children’s online safety, to the ethics of technology companies and to the role of government in citizens’ digital skills.

Dr. Park writes as if she is having a conversation among friends. The book takes readers to her final decade of how she started her work from being an advocate for child protection and technological regulation; she shows how that journey evolved to set the global standards for digital skills.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made this book even more relevant, as cyber risks and problems with digital skills have become critical as the world moves toward making online presence a daily challenge.
Based on her extensive research and experience, she discusses how and why DQ works as the new intelligence for everyone to thrive in this digital age with AI, metaverse and more. She shares her views on why it is crucial to empower children with DQ to become independent thinkers who can reduce and even translate cyber risks into new opportunities through technology. This trumps pure limitation and / or regulation of technology, which, although important, is not enough.
As Bill Drayton, the founder of Ashoka, Innovators for the Public, who coined the term ‘social entrepreneur’ and ‘change maker’, said: “Yuhyun Park is one of the world’s most successful social entrepreneurs. Her success reflects her deep understanding of the “Digital revolution and the need for people to guide it for good and not become its dependent peasants. In this book, she shares that understanding with rare clarity – a gift.”
Vint Cerf, one of the founders of the Internet, said: “This book is about the safe and moral use of digital technology and reminds us that young minds can be particularly vulnerable until they develop adequate Digital Intelligence (DQ). A must- read if you are interested in digital crash barriers in our society. ”
