Society 5.0, a concept put forward by the Japanese government, is a vision of a new society, and encompasses the efforts to bring about that society.
Society 5.0 is positioned after the first four "societies": (1) hunter-gatherer society, (2) agrarian society, (3) industrial society, and (4) information society.
Society 5.0 goals are developing the economy and resolving social issues, by using revolutionary technologies (such as AI, IoT, and robots) and various types of societal data.
These goals will help bring about a sustainable society where everyone can live safe and fulfilling lives. Society 5.0 will help achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) agreed on by the United Nations.
Society 5.0 represents a vision of a new society, and will lead the efforts in resolving social issues around the world.
