This epic presentation from a top consultant forecasts the future of tech and media

Microsoft HoloLensGettyMicrosoft is one of the many companies working on augmented reality tech with its HoloLens headset.

Augmented reality is a nascent industry, but it will eventually become a $A89.25 billion business, according to top business consultant Michael Wolf.

That’s just one of numerous predictions Wolf has for the future of the tech and media industries. He’s also bullish on smart speakers and digital assistants such as Siri.

Every year, Wolf puts together a slide presentation highlighting his forecasts. Wolf’s consulting firm, Activate, released his latest presentation at the Wall Street Journal’s D.Live conference in Laguna Beach, California, on Tuesday.

Wolf has a long history in tech and media, having served as a board member of Yahoo, managing partner at consulting powerhouse McKinsey, and chief operating officer of MTV networks.
