Launched as part of its R&D work, the “Technology Backdrop” survey – which went online for the first time in 2008 – is steered by AFNIC’s Scientific Council and carried out by the INIT Company. This survey aims to seek a common vision for technology trends.
Based on predictions made by the respondents to the survey, the backdrop consists of two types of assertions trends. First, the basis of the backdrop covers items on which a consensus has been reached. Then, while relying on this common basis, forecasts opposing subpopulations of respondents are used to integrate alternative scenarios into the backdrop.
