Abstract

The presence of robots or Artificial Intelligence (A.I) become real in World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting on January 23, 2019, in Davos, Switzerland. Japan became the country carrying Society 5.0. A human-centered society that balances economic progress by solving social problems through a system that profoundly integrates virtual space and physical space. Millennials, or Generation Y, known as multitasking and nimble, are interesting to study. However, what if the job or business was taken over by A.I? How to guarantee that millennial is the leading much player in terms of work, not AI or ICT? This research aims to find out about the expectations and anxieties of the millennial generation towards society 5.0. To gather data, this research using focus group discussion and in-depth interviews. Three groups from 3 different universities in Salatiga-Central Java became participants. Total participants are 14 students from millennial generations. The results are that human or individual traits tend to be mechanical or mechanistic because everything is organized, accurate, and completely autonomous (automatic). Anxiety will only occur or experienced by a group/people that are not ready with the presence of Society 5.0.
