MORE ABOUT SOCIETY 5.0:
Japan has its particular challenges and Society 5.0 aims to tackle several of these by going far beyond the digitalization of the economy and permeating all levels of Japanese society. Society 5.0 is also depicted as an evolution in five societal stages: hunting, agrarian, industrial, information, and super-smart.
