Interaction of human behavior, culture and technology

 to create Society 5.0”


Society continues to develop in various aspects. Since the industrial revolution carried out by the people of Great Britain between 1750-1850, progress in the field of industry has continued to occur. This development certainly has an impact on changes in the lives of global society which then also affects the behavior of each individual.
Many people say that the current industrial progress has reached the fourth or commonly known as the industrial revolution 4.0.

Society in that era depended on the performance of information technology. The emergence of online shops, online transportation, start-ups, etc. has impacted the way humans live their lives. Of course there are many positive and negative aspects that are balanced from this condition, but the question is how to build a society that can respond actively to these advances and not just become consumers of technology.

Japan responded to this condition by introducing its vision called Society 5.0 (Society 5.0) where the community could apply technology to their lives. So humans are no longer the objects of technological impact, but become subjects who actively utilize technology for their lives.

Society 5.0 is an example of how Japan’s mission and vision to respond to industrial progress. Whether the model is suitable for global society or not still requires a lot of study. Towards a picture of society 5.0, of course, requires the participation of individuals and communities to make it active. This is where the role of psychology is expected to facilitate empowerment of individuals and society to realize a productive future society through progress in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 era.
