Report shows biometrics on the agenda for half of British business leaders


Biomtric technology is not on the agenda of almost half of business leaders in the UK (49 percent), even though 72 percent say they are excited by the way technology is changing lives, according to new research from Fujitsu.

The report “Technology in a Transforming Britain” shows that only 15 percent of the public feels biometrics will impact various sectors, while electric vehicles and augmented reality will do so according to 52 percent and 46 percent, respectively.

Biometrics will be implemented by 28 percent of leaders in the transport sector in the next 12 months, just behind the most popular emerging technologies for transport, which are Robotic Process Automation (31 percent) and AI (30 percent), Intelligent Transport reports.

“The transport sector is changing faster than ever before – and its positive approach to technology adoption can bring huge advantages for UK citizens and sector organisations,” Russell Goodenough, Client Managing Director of Transport at Fujitsu told Intelligent Transport. “As we look ahead, it’s clear we can expect significant further changes as technologies like AI and biometrics are rolled out across the sector. What’s critical now, is for transport leaders to develop clear digital strategies that will see the greatest impact made, so that we can help provide the technology and expertise to help them succeed.”

The public is generally wary of the pace of change, with 46 percent seeing the social change brought on by technology as negative, according to the report.

A recent report indicated that UK financial institutions are lagging their global counterparts in adopting advanced authentication technology.
