Location Context and Knowledge Digitalization for Human-centric Digital Twin

Abstract In Society5.0, things and environments like vehicles, houses, buildings, and even cities will be digitalized and used to simulate, test, and predict real-world events efficiently and in real time. However, since the applications and services are expected to be human-centered in Society 5.0, how humans are involved in the virtual world with their contexts and knowledge is a primary research challenge for making human-centric applications into reality. In this talk, I will discuss recent development in human-centered Society 5.0 services, technologies, and applications. Through the introduction of my several ongoing projects closely related to Society 5.0 applications, state-of-the-art technologies on modeling, simulation, and analysis of human behavior, context, and knowledge will be addressed and demonstrated.
