Webinar 115: Society 5.0 Strategy in Japan

03-04-18 | 10:00 h - 11:00 h

What is the current status of the implementation of Society 5.0 in Japan?

Whereas other countries primarily are applying IoT in the manufacturing sector, Japan wants to go a step further and also utilize technologies such as AI and big data to further drive the digital transformation.  By merging the physical space (real world) and cyberspace, a super-smart society can be created in which humans and new technologies can coexist. Society 5.0 will network all people together to achieve broader socio-economic benefits.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to learn more about the Society 5.0 strategy and to find out the resulting business opportunities.

Registration deadline: 02/04/2018
