Speech Title: Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Society 5.0

Abstract: We live in the cutting-edge technological era, which has a high impact on our daily lives, and rapid development witnessed each day. A better example of this is the smart society 5.0 concept recently released by the Japanese government. This leads the existing society 4.0 information-based vision to smart society 5.0 human-centric concept alongside the Industrial revolution IR 4.0 to IR 5.0. The smart society rightly can be identified as "A human-centred society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by a system that highly integrates cyberspace and physical space." This heavily depends on the Internet of Things (IoT) use/adaption and other cutting-edge technologies, such as AI, Blockchain, Big data, Cybersecurity, etc. A massive amount of information from sensors in physical space is collected in cyberspace using the IoT. Which can be used for analysis, and the results will be fed back to the physical space in various forms. IoT will be acting as a backbone for collecting the data for multiple applications. It raises all the higher use and importance of IoT devices, which will bring several challenges and benefits at the same time. The challenges could be more towards privacy and security.
