Shortly after the Forum, the Advisory Board on Artificial Intelligence and Human Society, at the Council for Science, Technology and Innovation (CSTI), Cabinet Office, Japan, published an important report stemming from the 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan (2016–2020) where Japan introduced the concept of “Society 5.0” “as a way by which to guide and mobilize action in science, technology, and innovation to achieve a prosperous, sustainable, and inclusive future that is, within the context of ever-growing digitalization and connectivity, empowered by the advancement of AI”
