Society 5.0

What is Society 5.0?

"One definition: A human-centered society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by a system that highly integrates cyberspace and physical space." - Government of Japan

Achieving Society 5.0

"In the information society (Society 4.0), cross-sectional sharing of knowledge and information was not enough, and cooperation was difficult.

Because there is a limit to what people can do, the task of finding the necessary information from overflowing information and analyzing it was a burden, and the labor and scope of action were restricted due to age and varying degrees of ability. Also, due to various restrictions on issues such as a decreasing birthrate and aging population and local depopulation, it was difficult to respond adequately.

Social reform (innovation) in Society 5.0 will achieve a forward-looking society that breaks down the existing sense of stagnation, a society whose members have mutual respect for each other, transcending the generations, and a society in which each and every person can lead an active and enjoyable life.” - Government of Japan
