NEC's Technologies to Fulfill our Five Social Visions
In this section we take a look at the technologies deployed to bring amazing ideas to life based on our five visions for the future of society. These are introduced through feature articles and papers in NEC Technical Journal.
The world is at a turning point, facing global challenges such as growing demand for energy, food, water and other resources, the exacerbation of natural disasters by climate change, and ever more serious environmental issues. NEC will strive to preserve our precious planet, now and into the future, by visualizing the changes to the Earth and promoting the efficient and circular use of limited resources.
Societies are undergoing major changes, such as diversifying lifestyles and values. Working with citizens, industry, government and academia, NEC will promote inclusive, harmonious, and sustainable cities and mobility, to nurture attractive and livable communities for all.
Rapid globalization and ever more diverse societies have made mutual understanding essential. Meanwhile, communication methods continue to expand and evolve, including the introduction of virtual spaces, communication robots and the digitalization of the five senses. NEC is providing secure and intuitive communications infrastructure to connect people and things and share ideas across time, space, language and generations.
Changes to social and business environments, such as more complex and serious social issues and unpredictable situations, mean the digitalization of all aspects of society, as well as flexible workstyles, are more important than ever. NEC will develop innovative administrative tools, financial services and office environments to connect people and companies and shape industries and workstyles.
Around the world, people’s life needs are still going unmet. Some lack access to high-quality medical care and schooling, while others are looking for greater personal fulfilment in their lives. NEC will provide personalized services and experiences, from healthcare and education to leisure and recreation, and fill each day with inspiration.
