Update after the workshop [9 Jan 2021]: news on workshop
Digital Twin has been identified as a top ten Gartner Trend in 2019 and its position at the convergence of economic drivers and underpinning technology maturation supports its use in a wide variety of domains. While DT technology originates from the manufacturing domain it now represents great potential to reshape the future across other diverse domains where there is need to examine virtual interactions with the physical environment. Popularly, the digital twin concept goes beyond the traditional computer-based simulations and analysis and it represents a two-way communication bridge between the physical world and the digital world. The physical object exists in symbiotic relationship with its digital counterpart, being connected through real-time data communications and information transfer. The existence of Digital Twins is enabled by parallel advances in arrange of technologies including: Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Big Data Analytics. Different configurations of technology provide new opportunities for use but new domains of use also require new advances in supporting technology.
