As we move into the future, the development of technology is essential for many aspects of our lives. But is it possible that technology will develop too much and have adverse effects on our lives? If you’ve ever watched movies about AI or robots, you know that’s a possibility. While the number of criminal offenses in Japan are currently at the lowest level since the end of World War II, with public security improving, there has also been an increase in various types of fraud. With the ability for technology to be used for crimes, what can we do?

We believe the power of design may be able to solve crimes in a future society where technology has become too advanced. Future Design Challenge calls upon young creative talent and innovators around the world to solve potential problems with i-PRO.
