Prof Theo Arvanitis takes part in debate on digital connectivity

Theo ArvanitisProfessor Theo Arvanitis, Professor of E-Health Innovation at the Institute of Digital Healthcare, recently took part in a live debate on the subject 'How can we harness digital connectivity to create competitive advantage, and what do we need to do to enable it in business?'.

The event, organised by BQ Magazine, revealed wide understandings and diverse interests in digital connectivity, from health to gaming, and from education to business. Guests discussed everything from how texting was ‘invented’, to creating digital ‘avatars’ for future generations.

The various challenges of geographical digital connectivity were also addressed – from weak signals in rural areas to blind spots on major roads. But two key issues that came out of the debate were:
interesting businesses and public sector organisations to access high-speed internet links;
encouraging these links to be fully used to the advantages of commerce and the good of wider society.

A transcript of the debate can be read at the BQ Magazine website.
