Will consumers take to a digital wallet?- Issue 33: CognitionX – AI and The Future of Marketing

AI & the Future of Marketing

The EU is set to unveil plans for a digital wallet, following requests from member states to find a safe way for citizens to access public and private services online. The wallet would allow all 27 countries to log onto local government websites or pay utility bills using a single recognised identity, according to reports from the FT.

In the future a person hiring a car, for example, could use their digital wallet to do so remotely through an application that will verify their identity and issue an electronic key. That may cut waiting times and see an end to queues in the future.
