Attitudes to new technologies across Europe

The study reports that UK adults tend to be moderately sceptical about new technology in comparison to its European counterparts.

Readie also notes several potential issues that may be holding people back in adopting new technologies, including lacking skills to actively use technology, absence of training, insecurity in relation to cybercrime, and job loss due to automation.

While the study concludes that UK public are not ready or equipped to make the most of the digital transformation, it also acknowledges potential for the government and business to be proactive.
