We are pleased to announce that folks from the Ireland Japan Chamber of Commerce will be joining us for this event. Technology is often perceived with fear or anxiety, especially by older generations and people in rural areas. With a rapidly aging and shrinking population, rural Japan faces many demographic challenges to keep its industry competitive and to provide services to its citizens. Our presenter,Hiroshige Sugihara (Senior Vice President, Oracle Corporation; Representative Executive Officer, President & CEO of Oracle Japan), will share his ideas on how technology can be a great benefit to society and help Japan resolve many of its future challenges. Mr. Sugihara will explain why he avoids the term “Digital Disruption” which invokes fear, and instead prefers to use “Digital Aid” which is much more friendly. This presentation will touch all areas of society from healthcare, logistics, government, business, and entertainment and will include case studies from the US and Japan.
今日、革新的なIT技術により様々な産業や社会において大きな変革の波が押し寄せていることから、欧米ではこうした現象を「デジタル・ディスラプション（Digital Disruption）」と表現しています。Disruptionとは、「混乱・決裂」などを意味する一方で、テクノロジーが社会にもたらすプラス面は多く、ICT業界のキーパーソンである日本オラクル株式会社の杉原博茂氏（取締役 代表執行役 社長兼CEO）はこれを「デジタル・エイド（Digital Aid）」と表現しています。
