- Director of Technology, Innovation and Enterprise, Stephen Almond said:
“As a regulator, part of our role is to foster trust in how organisations process personal information, whilst championing growth and innovation.
- “Crucially, what we’ve seen through our research is that while the technologies and the opportunities organisations offering are new, the ways to encourage public trust are not.
- Research suggests that these devices could monitor your blood sugar, alcohol and hydration levels and influence people’s decisions.
- In the future, these immersive technologies have the potential to overcome geographical barriers as well as improving educational experiences.
- This enables consumers to have continued access to banking apps and services improving the ease of moving, lending and borrowing money.
- We will use these lessons learned to further develop our views and guidance on emerging technologies.
