A view of the Japanese AI developments during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Japanese vision towards the future.

This article provides an overview of the latest AI developments in Japan. AI plays an important role in several top sectors in Japan and is an essential part of the Japanese Innovation Strategy. The Japanese AI Strategy is part of the Japanese vision of the future, the so called ‘Society 5.0’. Society 5.0 is a society heavily supported by technologies like AI to counter problems like an aging society and natural disasters. Similar to the rest of the world, the Japanese economy has been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This can influence the Japanese AI strategy and its three tracks consisting of Productivity, Health and Mobility. Nevertheless, it seems that AI is not just negatively impacted by thepandemic. On the contrary, we see in Japan all kind of innovative AI supported solutions to deal with the new social distancing reality. From robots to VR tourism, this article will show some of the Japanese AI initiatives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This article is part of a rapport about AI in Japan, which will be published later this year.
