TOKYO -- Conversations on next generation technologies were largely hypothetical only a few months ago, but the potential of 5G networks, quantum computing and location services are being tested in real-time as a way to contend with the coronavirus pandemic and to adjust to the 'new normal' that it has forced upon us.

"It's easy to take all this technology for granted but these types of new services, the digitalization of society, is felt by everyone in the world," said Takahito Tokita, CEO of Fujitsu. He was among a handful of leaders in the digital economy who delivered lectures on the second day of the 22nd Global Digital Summit, hosted by Nikkei.
