Japan’s Society 5.0: Transforming Digital Innovation

About event:

Japan has embarked on a bold initiative named “Society 5.0.” Spearheaded by the Abe government, the nation is embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, big data and artificial intelligence to create smart solutions to resolve various social challenges, such as, the increasingly ageing population. Leveraging the innovations of the fourth industrial revolution, the government aims to streamline labour intensive processes and increase productivity through autonomous systems, robotics and internet-based technologies. These innovations will lead to widespread societal changes across many sectors, including smart cities, security, health, aged care and government services to create a more liveable and sustainable environment.

Join our expert panellists to hear how your business can embrace new technologies to create a more efficient and sustainable environment, using Japan as a leading example. The discussion will highlight opportunities and challenges to consider for your business.
