CICC TOKYO DAYORI vol.60
We often hear the word "safety(Anzen in Japanese) and security
(Anshin in Japanese)” recently.

However, it is said that it has been some time since the breakdown of the
myth that “Japan is a country where we can live in safety and security”.
Events including disasters, crimes, food safety problems, medical mistakes etc.
that threaten our safety and security are increasing.

Utilization of IT has been expected to play a major role in the prevention
and resolution of issues relating to safety and security.
For example, as a measure to prevent disasters, the national and local
governments are putting in place systems for information collection,
provision of information to citizens, and wide area collaboration to provide
early warning of disasters.

As crime prevention and security measures, systems to guard children
on their way to and from school, support for single elderly persons,
and systems to share information regarding suspicious persons by local
governments using the web are examples.

For food safety, there are traceability systems for agricultural and
livestock products.

In the medical field, there are electronic records, telemedicine (distant
medical care), collaborative use of medical information.
Development has been under way for a medical accident prevention
system using advanced medical technologies including electronics tags
and sensor network technology.
In order to eliminate issue of the shortage of doctors, preparation for
wide area collaboration network has been under way.

Among such diverse uses, learning of safety and security utilizing IT
(e-learning) is attracting much attention as a another new development .

For example, its applications are expanding in those fields to obtain
specialized medical knowledge and education and to secure disaster
prevention measures in preparation of disasters.

I think although there are many ways of understanding safety and
security, it will require people-friendly and human-oriented IT utilization.

[IoT for whom?]

In the last issue of this Tokyo Dayori, Ms. Shirakura told about her
lessons learned with JR (railway company). Here is another cautionary

[Inconvenience in the convenient modern digital society]

The Japanese Government announced “The New Tourism Nation Promotion
Basic Plan”.[1] in 2012. The plan clearly wrote “Number of visitors to
Japan from other countries will increase to 18 million by 2016”, aiming
at the long-term target of an increase to 25 million by the beginning of 2020.

[Current status of taxi dispatch service in Japan]

After the Rugby World Cup to be held in 2019 towards the Tokyo Olympics
and Paralympic Games in 2020, it is expected that the number of tourists
visiting Japan will reach 40 million. And it seems that improving the
convenience of their transportation will be one of the big issues for
the tourists as well.

Cyber-attacks on companies and others that have recently become popular.
What is pointed out as an increasing background is the existence of
a dark site where "hacking tools" and "personal information" etc. are
being sold.

A new School term starts on April 1st in Japan.
I work for PTA(Parent-Teacher Association) activities for the first
time in 10 years in our elementary school.
People say, “Ten years make a short age.”  
To be honest, I felt a little bit worry to restart PTA activities,
because the advent of new technology might make me a deadwood.
