Keynote Talk at MDENET Symposium 2022

On 26th January 2022, Prof. Balbir Barn from LDTRC delivered a keynote talk on “Digital Twin: Current Practice and Future (Sociotechnical) Prospects” at the MDENET Symposium 2022. Digital Twin research and activity is prevalent such that Digital Twins are acquiring silver bullet status. In the United Kingdom in particular, Digital Twin features as a key strand in future-proofing UK infrastructure such as that described in the UK Innovation Strategy. Notably, Digital Twins (DT) have a family resemblance to computational modelling and computer simulation more generally. The talk outlined the importance of the role of DT, their key characteristics, the types of digital twin and their underpinning enabling technologies.
