    Society 5.0では、進展するICTの活用により働き方もスマートに

    Society 5.0が実現すると、時間や空間に縛られない働き方が増加し得る。人々はAI、ロボット等の機械との協調により、それぞれの能力を伸ばし、自分自身にあった働き方を実現するほか、仮想現実や拡張現実等のICTを活用した高度なテレワークによる「働き方のスマート化」が実現し得る。

    具体的には、決められた就業時間に会社に来て働くワークスタイルが見直され、自宅やカフェ等の好きな場所で自分の好きな時間に働くことや、ICT の活用によって、遠隔地にいる同僚があたかも同じ会議室にいるように働くことができるようになる中、移動を伴わず会合に参加したり、人とコミュニケーションを取ることが可能となる。

    ただし、こうした変化は、人々が時間や空間を問わず「働かされる」ことではない。働いた時間による評価から、成果による評価に力点が移ることで、不必要な長時間労働はなくなるほか、長時間労働の是正に向けた施策が取られるようになると考えられる。

    今後、Society 5.0の実現によって、個人が自分の意思で働く場所と時間を選択する、すなわち、自分のライフスタイルを自分で選べるような社会になることが期待される。

    Japan looks beyond Industry 4.0 towards Society 5.0

    At the Cebit trade show in Germany, Japanese businesses want to go beyond smart factories, deploying industrial technologies to build a smart society

    by Peter Sayer

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/3182556/robots/japan-looks-beyond-industry-40-towards-society-50.html

    Declining birth rate, aging population, natural disasters, pollution: Do these sound like issues the IT industry can deal with? Japanese businesses say yes, and a number of them are at the Cebit trade show in Hanover, Germany, to explain why.

    Industry 4.0 — the building of “smart factories” in which machines monitor one another and make decentralized decisions about production and maintenance — has been a theme of recent Cebit shows.

    Now, under the banner Society 5.0, the show’s partner country for 2017, Japan, wants to take the transformation beyond industry, making “smart society” one of the show’s talking points.

    Behind the drive are some very real societal problems. Japan’s population is falling, but the average age of its citizens is increasing. A consequence of a low birth rate and extreme longevity, this is leading to an imbalance between young, active workers and those needing care. But with the country in a seismically active area, and having an ageing industrial infrastructure, this shrinking workforce is likely to deal with natural disasters and incidents of pollution.

    The Japan Business Federation (Keidanren) has set out a plan for addressing the transformation.

    It wants to open up Japanese workplaces to foreign workers and to women, two groups notoriously underrepresented in Japanese industry. This alone could go some way to alleviating the country’s demographic problems.

    Outside the workplace, it is looking for ways in which technology can help all citizens to participate actively in society, even the elderly.

    To allow companies to build technology ecosystems together, Keidanren wants less competition and more cooperation with foreign businesses in some fields.

    And, of course, it sees a new role in transforming society for many of the technologies that are already changing industry, with the internet of things, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and robotics among the areas sure to play a part. Japan’s use of robotics in industry is already second only to that of South Korea, with 211 robots per 10,000 workers. Germany is in third place with 161 per 10,000, putting those countries well on the way to Industry 4.0.

    Show visitors will be able to hear more about Japanese industrialists’ vision for Society 5.0 in the Cebit Japan Summit, webcast live from the Sakura stage in Hall 8 on Monday March 20, from 11.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. And later in the week, they’ll be able to hear the robots’ point of view too: Pepper the humanoid robot will be on stage in Hall 8 on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, participating in discussions about designing customer experiences with humanoid robots, and machine recognition of human emotions.

    Pepper, now owned by Japanese internet and telecommunications company Softbank, was originally developed in France, but other Japanese companies exhibiting at Cebit will be demonstrating technologies made in Japan.

    Japan has a long-standing reputation for microelectronics, but not all the innovations on show at Cebit are about miniaturization.

    Komatsu has brought its latest intelligent excavator. While still leaving its human operator to direct the broad sweeps of the bucket, the PC210LCi-11 compares its movements with a digital version of the construction project to prevent the operator from digging outside of the defined area. That can mean less work in staking out the construction site, and in surveying the finished excavation. The whole thing is monitored via a touch-screen display. Showgoers can experience what it’s like to operate one in a simulator on Komatsu’s stand.

    If you carry a smartphone, you probably spent a significant part of the day wondering when best to recharge it — and that’s for a battery containing a few watt-hours of energy, at best. When your battery is a thousand times as big, intended to store up renewable energy and power your home or workplace, then the decision when to charge and discharge can be thousands of times more complicated. Companies like Tesla and Toshiba want to make such big batteries commonplace, and Toshiba is also thinking about how to get the most value out of every charge. It will be showing the first fruits of a research project into distributed energy resource aggregation for virtual power plants, which attempts to balance local energy demand and energy supply from renewable sources such as photovoltaics to decide when to draw on its 10kWh fixed storage batteries. By using a distributed array of such batteries to smooth out dips in generation and peaks in demand, it hopes to reduce the need for centralized generating capacity, and plans to bring the service to market in October.

    Knowing what’s going on across a power network helps Toshiba reduce power plant costs and improve reliability — and Fujitsu hopes to do the same for industrial plant. Its Intelligent Dashboard gives an overview of what’s going on in a factory, highlighting problems and offering guidance on preventive maintenance. The same company is also showing Ubiquitousware, which employs some of the same technologies found in fitness wearables to monitor location, body position and vital signs, learning the wearer’s movements so as to identify anomalies such as falls, drowsiness or ill health. Fujitsu sees applications in industry, transport (driver safety) or in health care, where the devices could be worn by staff and patients alike.

    CeBIT: Japan’s vision of Society 5.0

    Euronews

    http://www.euronews.com/2017/03/24/cebit-japan-s-vision-of-society-50

    There is a new technological revolution arising, and Japan wants to be at the forefront of it.

    Japan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe explained his vision.

    “We are now witnessing the opening of the 5th chapter. We are now able to find solutions to problems that could not be solved before. This is the age, in which all things are connected, all technologies fuse, and this is the advent of Society 5.0.”

    From robots to smart systems for data processing – never was Japan’s presence at CeBIT so massive.

    The country now also sets trends in the field of human robotics.

    Meet “Pepper” the humanoid, who shakes your hand for starters, whom you can talk to and that you might be able to encounter soon at a hotel reception desk or at an office.

    “I don’t think robots are stealing people’s jobs yet,” Yuta Mitsubori, founder and CEO of Unicast, told Euronews. “They can actually do jobs that don’t need humans while humans can give much more attention to more important things. That’s the goal of our application.”

    One of the most diverse booths at ITB was set up by Japanese NTT Group, historically a telecommunications company now investing in all the big ICT trends.

    Here, the company also showcased all things connected and “smart” – from agriculture to manufacturing to transportation.

    “The important point for us is how each company in our group can help our clients and users to create new business models or new systems in different fields,” NTT president and CEO Hiroo Unoura told Euronews.

    One of those applications involves NTT subsidiary Dimension Data equipping Tour de France cyclists with a GPS sensor to record where they are and how fast they are going.

    Smart solutions are the key to the Japanese vision of Society 5.0 – and it reaches into literally every segment of society, including fashion.

    Seiren has created what it calls a 21st century styling system.

    Try on your dresses digitally, order them online, and have them delivered to your house.

    “Up until today, if you can sell 60 per cent of production, it was already considered a big success and 40 percent was thrown away as a loss,” said Seiren CEO Tatsuo Kawada.

    “From now on, we will only produce the items that we will have sold, with small lot production, lots of styles, short delivery times, less stock, and customization.”

    The Japan Summit at CeBIT aimed to show the potential of the Internet of Things to create a “super-intelligent” society.

    “German and Japanese companies have a long-standing relationship. For example, the diesel engine,” Jetro CEO Hiroyuki Ishige told Euronews. “In This engine was invented at the end of the 19th century in Germany and in Japan a company named Yanmar developed a smaller type of this engine. And there are other examples where products invented in Germany have been applied and developed in Japan.”

    How can so much data be transferred one day?

    Doing basic research in the field of superconductors, Japanese company Fujikura offers solutions such as this fiber laser.

    “The special thing here in this fiber laser is the cables that we produce,” said Fujikura project manager Atussa Sarvestani. “They are made from fiberglass, and they can transfer extremely high amounts of data through cables rather small in size.”

    One of its core businesses is the auto industry where its cables are used in electric cars.

    CeBIT is also a great opportunity for local businesses to stay connected.

    “I believe that CeBIT is the ideal platform to intensify the already good and intensive collaboration,” said Benno Bunse, CEO Germany Trade And Invest. “For German, especially for German small and medium size enterprises, this is a great opportunity to get to know the international offer in the field of digitalization.”

    A glimpse of what to expect at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo which will be broadcast in 8K resolution whcih has sixteen times as many pixels as Full HD.

    “8K has been developed by Japan Broadcasting Cooperation NHK for the next generation of television,” said Yasushi Seito, Senior Associate Director, NHK Television.

    The images in this 8K cinema make you feel like being inside of these people celebrating in Japan, and this is how 2020 could feel like in your living room.
