What are digital twins?

Digital twin technology and AI are spurring innovation across industries, from automotive and aviation to oil/gas and energy. A digital twin is a model that incorporates data continuously collected from its real-world counterpart. Using this accurate virtual replica, businesses can monitor, control, predict and detect issues before they occur.

Dr. Parris will show how digital twin technology helps industries respond dynamically to new challenges, resulting in a boost to productivity, streamlined operations and increased profits.
