“Japan will use the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to showcase its robotics technology and give visitors a sense of a futuristic society where humans are waited on hand and foot by robots.

A committee of the science and technology ministry that was formed Sept. 15 proposed setting up a robotic village in time for the Games as part of an initiative toward a “universal future society” where robots and information technologies that assist humans regardless of age, nationality or disabilities are commonplace.” (The Asahi Shimbun)

“Japan is one of the few countries in the world likely to experience something that popular movies have predicted for years: a robot revolution. With PM Abe’s release of his plans for economic structural reform, the topic of creating a Robot Revolution Realization Council came to fruition. The premise of this council is to examine the possibility of introducing more robots into sectors such as manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, and even nursing care to help foster growth in Japan.”    (Riley Walters, The Daily Signal)
