To live lives
Advances in technology allow the world to be connected in the blink of an eye, and are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual. These technical advances are expanding the values of humanity, leading us towards a richer way of living.
And this evolution of humanity through technology is starting to include the possibilities of life. Life supported by technology, designed by technology. The life within machines, robots, and artificial Intelligence (AI). The new life from the fusion of humanity and technology will be freed from the limitations of the flesh or the environment, be freer, and will start an exploration of new possibilities.
The theme of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan is “Designing Future Society for Our Lives”. At the signature pavilion of “Future of Life” overseen by ISHIGURO Hiroshi, one of Japan’s foremost roboticists, the theme is “Amplification of Lives” and will be a venue to create and showcase new ways of being alive.
How far will life evolve in fifty years? What sort of happiness will it bring to our daily lives, our society? How far will life reach in a thousand years? What freedoms and pleasure of living await us? The era where we design the life we want to live is already dawning.
