Tipp: Podcast „space AGE space – Elderly Care in a Digitally Connected World“

A central part of Society 5.0 – Japan’s vision of fully digitally connected future – focuses on how connectivity, big data and AI can contribute to solve Japan’s pressing problems in the field of elderly care. How can sensor technology and connectivity support care-taking? How far are we away from implementation? Which countries are taking the lead? What major obstacles need to be overcome? Prof. Thomas Bock, a leading German engineer in the field of building robotics, and Prof. Shuichi Matsumura, a leading Japanese engineer specializing in system design for housing and urban spaces, talked at a recent event at the German Institute for Japanese Studies about the potential of the digital revolution for elderly care in living environments.

Prof. Waldenberger, director of the German Institute for Japanese Studies, conceptualized our last WeberWorldCafé on „Demographic Change: Challenges and Opportunities for local Communities“.
