Prepare yourself for Society 5.0 at SSW!

24 August 2023 | General News

What should societies look like in 2050? 

How can we be sure emerging technologies serve us as humans rather than the other way around? 

Get ready to navigate the uncharted territories of Society 5.0, where the interconnections between humans and technology are reshaping our behaviours and responses. From online learning to data protection, cryptocurrency to chatbots, the way we live, work, play, and earn is constantly evolving as access to digital solutions permeate every aspect of society. 

To explore the bold new frontier of Society 5.0, RMIT University, the principal sponsor for Social Sciences Week, is bringing together a panel of internationally recognised experts. At this cutting-edge event, new insights will be revealed into the challenges and opportunities that are emerging in a society in which digital disruptions are ubiquitous. 

Featuring five of RMIT’s leading researchers whose expertise collectively covers global digital culture, information science, blockchain, web futures, AI, decision-making, machine learning and ethics, the discussion will probe essential questions impacting the trajectory of our societies as we navigate the rapidly changing and all-pervasive influence of new technology on what it means to act with humanity.  

Not just a conversation, this event is an invitation to help shape our technological landscape in line with our collective human values.  

Elevate your understanding, refresh your perspective and be part of a dialogue that will influence our technological trajectory.
