Augmented Reality: High Potential

How a range of emerging technologies will transform pretty much everything about the web

Publication Cover

Most emerging technologies are over-hyped, with start-up CEOs, venture capitalists and the trade media working to create a wave of euphoria, which eventually breaks on the rocks of reality when people realize that the story doesn’t add up.

But Augmented Reality (AR) is a rare example of a technology that is, for once, actually underhyped and the numerous detailed use cases and visualizations included in this report will clearly demonstrate why.

AR will utterly redefine how we interface with others and how we access digital content and services. Meanwhile, a mature implementation of AR will  result in major downsizing of traditional physical screen markets, such as tablets, PCs, TV sets and even smartwatches.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by Country

Economic Statistics and Forecasts

Data
Using IMF data and other sources where necessary, we have compiled GDP series for 187 countries. These are brought together in regional groupings to demonstrate the overall trends at country, regional and global levels. To enable a full understanding of the economic situation in a given country, we have provided GDP figures in current prices, based on constant prices (which exclude the effect of inflation), on a per capita basis and finally on a Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) basis. As well as historical data, we have also included projections of the change in GDP for the years 2016 to 2021.

Artificial Intelligence Demystified

At last – a clear explanation of what separates dumb computers from intelligent machines

Publication Cover

When pressed, most software engineers will admit that they do not really understand how AI can be real intelligence, or even how to recognize whether AI is present, or not.

For people who have spent their entire careers working with logic and known outcomes the idea that their programs can be used to build truly intelligent machines seems rather unsettling.

If experts like these are struggling then what hope for other groups - like journalists, industry executives, regulators and policy makers?

Meanwhile, the leading players - Google, IBM, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple are racing off into the distance.

We therefore see an opportunity to help fill a major gap between the consensus view of what AI is, and what AI actually is.

Using a new approach we have generated a range of major insights that have allowed us to answer the most important questions in the field of AI in a new way which is clearer, simpler and more compelling than before, for example:

  • How can a computer that is based on logical programs ever be genuinely intelligent?
  • What is the difference between a dumb computer and an intelligent machine?
  • Is the intelligence of a machine limited by the intelligence of those who created it?
  • Is machine intelligence different in nature to human intelligence?

GDP Cannot Explain The Digital Economy

The world’s primary measure of growth is largely irrelevant for the most important part of economy

Publication Cover

The engine of the digital economy is the technology used to deliver finished digital services to businesses and consumers.

Comprising connected devices, broadband infrastructure, cloud software, internet-based services and many other markets, the societal benefits that this technology delivers is measured by proxy, by adding up the total spending by businesses and consumers on finished digital products and services.

Our analysis is that the digital economy could already account for 20% of the real value delivered by the global economy, which is dramatically different to the consensus view which is that the digital economy currently accounts for just 5% of global GDP.

This report provides a clear explanation and compelling examples and analysis for why the value benefits delivered by the digital economy cannot be correctly measured by using conventional economic measures such as spending by consumers or businesses.

Over the Top (OTT) Internet Television: Best Years Lie Ahead

Why the future of television distribution will increasingly involve the Internet

Publication Cover

The television industry is experiencing a generational upheaval as legacy recorded formats - like DVD and Blu-ray, and distribution infrastructures - like satellite and terrestrial broadcast, are increasingly being replaced by virtual formats and Internet-based distribution.

Freed from the limitations of physical media, linear programming formats and broadcast distribution, television – as an entertainment category – is about to experience its best years yet.

The mass deployment of digital devices has dramatically expanded the consumption envelope which has led to the total number of hours of content being produced per year rising to an all time high. Meanwhile, online publishers are turning to video to attract and retain users, further fueling the demand for new content.

It is no wonder that the total number of hours spent viewing television content is higher than ever before.

In the future, the only role for legacy TV business models will be in developing markets which have poorly developed internet infrastructure and in niche market segments - like home theater, or where the target demographic is aged and not interested in changing ingrained behavior patterns.

This report presents a detailed analysis and projections for the internet television market worldwide.

Apart from details on all the major players and market projections for the four main OTT revenues streams you will find a rich narrative that explains what the market looks like today and what it will become in the future.
