Mohammad Aldabbas, Stephanie Teufel, Bernd Teufel, and Janick Spycher

Abstract—The rapid changes and development of technology are always bringing social challenges to societies and human daily life. The industrial revolution changed the face of the earth in an unprecedented way. Likewise does the emergence of Society 5.0. This study investigates the impact of technology of the future smart society on the quality of life taking Switzerland as an example with keeping an eye on the opportunity-risk analysis. Five measurable variables were defined to run the forecast. The outcomes predict slight improvement of the financial situation in the society collectively, but it is accompanied with job shortage in some sectors. The study and results presented in this paper are part of an ongoing comprehensive research project on Smart Sovereignty in a forthcoming smart society.

Index Terms—Forecast, AR model, regression analysis, quality of life, smart society, society 5.0 (S5.0), Switzerland.
