For more than 10 years, I have been working towards the realization of the Human Centric ICT System, which is now becoming the reality. On March 11th, 2011, Japan was attacked sever disaster named Eastern Japan earthquake and Tsunami, and about 20,000 people lost their lives. ICT system was also damaged, and made it difficult to carry out quick restoration and recovery process. This strongly reminded ICT engineers that the ICT system is the life line of the society, and many discussions started about “How the ICT system should be". I have been deeply involved to one of the committee activities whose theme is to realize an ICT system to contribute creating a safe and secure resilient society. The direction of the system paradigm is in good match with the Human Centric ICT System. In my talk, I will introduce the major outcomes of the committee activities together with the concept of the Human Centric ICT System.
