"Mapping ICT into Transformation for the Next Information Society"

The fundamental ecosystem of ICT consists of the three layers, infrastructure, platform, and applications. The current global trend in these three layers can be summarized as follows: (1) Broadband infrastructures, wired or wireless, have been deployed in the competitive or public policy scheme and are bases for upcoming platforms and applications. This is due to technological development, policies for promoting competition, as well as the provision of public subsidies. As a result, some economies have reached the level where the number of subscribers is becoming satiated; (2) Regarding platforms, a remarkable development is cloud computing, for example, which is now the basis of smartphones and B2B or B2C e-commerce; and (3) No explanation is necessary for this term. Everything is being connected to the Internet (IoT), and this is transforming traditional systems into entirely new ones. ICT enables not only the sharing of information among people, but also the sharing of services such as automobiles (Uber), rooms (Airbnb), and so on. The volume of information is growing explosively, this being termed ‘big data.’ AI (artificial intelligence) has become capable of handling and analyzing this real-time data making it possible to instantly foresee the result of actions. One example is that robots now beat professional chess or Go players. Fintech, autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, etc., are other examples.Among these trends, the future of ICT is not necessarily glamorous; there are new as well as already old issues for the harmonious use of ICT, including universal ICT services, infrastructure upgrading, information security, and privacy. The ITS Kyoto 2017 thus aims, by discussions among global experts, to discover how not only the region but the entire world can transform and construct a new paradigm for the knowledge-based society through ICT.
