Book now to be part of Scotland's first 'Discover Digital' week
Thursday October 25th 2018
DHI Demonstration & Simulation environment
Imagine the future: by 2020 smart technologies will be more embedded in our cities, houses and everyday life. Since summer 2014, the number of people in the UK who own a wearable has risen from two to 17 per cent. One in ten wearable owners own two or more devices, and more than three quarters (78%) of the total number of wearable owners say they expect to get another in the future – indicating that once a wearable is part of your life, it becomes indispensable.
The government is keen to understand how citizens would like to share the data that they capture to provide digital health and care solutions that will add value.
Join the DHI as they showcase how this could look over the next 2-3 years and discover what this might mean to you as a citizen. They will show how data you already capture using common branded devices from Apple, Microsoft, Dropbox ,etc… could be integrated into your digital health and care provisions.
All attendees will receive a FREE 1-month Nextbike voucher and also be in with the chance of winning a FitBit or 1 year use of Nextbike FREE.
This event is part of Discover Digital: for your health and wellbeing, Scotland’s first week dedicated to hands on, immersive, multi-media wellbeing events. To see the full listing go to www.alliance-scotland.org.uk/DiscoverDigital.
