Biometric payments—scanning an iris or veins in a palm—seem like science fiction, but it’s a growing reality around the world.
Many consumers are likely not running out to buy a device with biometrics because such devices are pricey. Indeed, Apple’s iPhone X is the manufacturer’s most expensive device to date.
Some 46.1% of respondents said they were not likely to purchase a device with facial recognition to help protect their privacy, while 46.1% said they were at least somewhat likely to buy one.
There’s no denying that smartphones with biometrics will soon be the norm. But consumers are somewhat split when it comes to mobile devices with facial recognition capability,
Nearly two-thirds of smartphones shipped worldwide this year will feature some sort of biometric capability. By 2019, it is estimated all smartphones worldwide will ship with biometric technology embedded in them.
Just 54% of business and IT executives said they were aware of AI, compared with 78% who were aware of 3-D printing.
