Industry 5.0 is a value driven initiative not a technology driven revolution that drives technological transformation to achieve a particular purpose. To examine such value driving initiatives in industry 5.0 (real-world applications of the AI based technologies e.g., service robots), the use of AI is evident in several industries such as tourism, education, manufacturing, healthcare, entertainment, and retail. Recent research underscores the relevance of human-machine interactions and their impact on value creation by augmenting their respective capabilities. The ultimate focus of the human-machine collaboration is stakeholder well-being (e.g., customers, employees, and society). Additional research is needed to examine how this new focus revolutionises value creation by service firms and examining their respective capabilities.
