(Chairman/ Professor, Tokyo Denki University)


In recent years, the rapidly evolving digitalization, data coordination and its utilization has created a new reality in which people, organizations, logistics--in reality, almost everything--are constantly connected on a global level and mutually influence one another. In this mission area, we aim to realize a next-generation information society that enables creation of new values and immediate response to uncertain and discontinuous changes through collection of diverse and reliable data in the real world and connection with various things to them.
(Excerpt from MEXT's "About Areas of Prioritized Themes")

"Vision of the mission area"
DX (digital transformation) is affecting all areas of our lives, and is key to creating the society of tomorrow. Yet as we attempt to implement new digital technologies we must consider what true "digitalization" means and what can and should be achieved through the process. This mission area assumes a future in which all elements of society, including human knowledge, will have "Digital Twins", and aims to establish technology that will support new lifestyles, services and infrastructure.
