Webinar on Society 5.0

Webinar on Society 5.0

The basic schema of Society 5.0 is that data are collected from the “real world” and processed by computers, with the results being applied in the real world. To cite a familiar example, an air-conditioning unit automatically keeps a room at the temperature programmed into the unit. An air conditioner regularly measures the room’s temperature, and an internal microcomputer then compares the temperature reading with the registered temperature setting. Depending on the result, the airflow is activated or deactivated automatically, such that the room maintains the desired temperature. Many of the systems we rely on in society use this basic mechanism. It underlies the systems responsible for keeping our homes adequately supplied with electricity, and those that keep the trains running on time. This mechanism relies on computerized automated controls. When people use the term “information society,” they mean a society in which each of these systems collects data, processes them, and then applies the results in a particular real-world environment.
