About Privacy by Design. “Privacy is not that a big deal in Japan and the perception of privacy is seen differently that in the West. I have been in talks with the Japanese government regarding privacy laws and data protection in Japan, especially as the world’s biggest data gatherers are global companies. That is why we are trying to leverage the conversation around data privacy and protection in Japan.” About CollaboGate. “We are building a decentralized collaboration platform based on blockchain technology. It is related again to identity and data protection using blockchain.” About Society 5.0. “I totally advocate this concept. Humans should be at the center and at the forefront of technology applications. At the moment technology is beneficial especially for businesses but not so much to the citizens. So I agree with opening this conversation and I am proud Japan is leading it. I love the concept of putting humans again at the center of it all.”
