The firm GlobalData (via Advanced Television) surveyed many professionals in the tech industry to find out which was, among a selection of emerging technologies, the most innovative: artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, cloud computing, internet of things, blockchain, 5G and augmented reality (AR).
Augmented reality on the rise
It is therefore the latter which wins the bet, placed in first position by 70% of respondents and dethroning artificial intelligence, until then the title holder. In the previous quarter, AR had only been chosen at 51%. In addition, 58% of respondents say their opinion of this technology has become more positive over the past twelve months.

"This change in perception of AR is likely to be confirmed in the long term," comments Filipe Oliveira, analyst at GlobalData. It's clear that people are getting used to technology, even if they don't believe it will change the world overnight. ”
