Artificial intelligence. Augmented and virtual realities. Advanced robotics. Synthetic forms of life. These are emerging, disruptive technologies that are poised to have significant influence on the future of human life. Society 5.0 is an initiative of CSU's TECH Hub built on the premise that humanity is rapidly approaching a fifth stage of development.

Designed to confront big questions concerning human-machine interfaces, knowledge formation, privacy, security and what constitutes life and the living, the initiative is anchored by a four-course graduate certificate taught across three different colleges, and also includes a community-engaged seminar series, student-led lecture competitions, podcasts and interdisciplinary research.
