Abstract

This study focuses on the sustainable development and intelligence information society, analyzing the results of science and technology forecasts from Korea and Japan for 2040–2050. Future geological environment and disaster technologies are presented, such as base geology, geophysical geological disaster, weather adjustment, CO2 reduction, environmental disaster, and smart ecocity developments. For the future technologies in energy and resources technology, space resources development and nuclear fusion will be realized by 2040 and 2050. Moreover, new material and resource technologies will be applied to replace existing energy and mineral resources by 2040. Japan has introduced intelligent information viewpoints and presented new technologies.

Keywords future forecast, science and technology foresight, emerging technology, research and development (R&D)
