Hunter- gatherer Society
Realizing Society 5.0
We aim at creating a society where we can resolve various social challenges by incorporating the innovations of the fourth industrial revolution (e.g. IoT, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), robot, and the sharing economy) into every industry and social life. By doing so the society of the future will be one in which new values and services are created continuously, making people’s lives more conformable and sustainable.
This is Society 5.0, a super-smart society. Japan will take the lead to realize this ahead of the rest of the world.
The Road to Society 5.0
Defining Society 1.0 as the hunter-gatherer stage of human development, we have now passed through the agrarian and industrial stages, Society 2.0 and 3.0, and are moving beyond the information age, Society 4.0.
Entering Society 5.0 AI
Big Data collected by IoT will be converted into a new type of intelligence by AI and will reach every corner of society. As we move into Society 5.0 all people’s lives will be more comfortable and sustainable as people are provided with only the products and services in the amounts and at the time needed.
Japan has advantages that make Society 5.0 possible
