Society 5.0 and Social Development: Contributions to a Discussion

Carlos Miguel Ferreira, Sandro Serpa


This opinion article intends to address the emergence of what will, potentially, be a central concept in a very near
future, that of Society 5.0, and that emerges politically as a (con)sequence of the implementation of the concept of
Industry 4.0. By proposing a deepening of the potential of the individual-technology relationship in fostering the
improvement of the quality of life of all people through a super-intelligent society, Society 5.0 is an extremely recent
concept as a guide for social development and that can have a profound impact on societies at all levels, such as in
terms of the quality of life and sustainability. This presentation is based on very recent publications, but it also has a
prospective component, which always generates some indeterminacy and uncertainty. Also for this reason, this
contribution seeks, above all, to help in this very urgent and necessary discussion.
