The College of Business and Public Policy (CBPP) has joined the Digital Twin Consortium, The Authority in Digital Twin™. 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.

“Digital twin technology and artificial intelligence are spurring innovation across industries,” said Dr. Helena S. Wisniewski, UAA Professor of Entrepreneurship and Chair of the Department of Management, Marketing, Logistics, and Business Analytics. “It’s very exciting for the College of Business and Public Policy to be engaging Alaskans in the emergence of this technology. Through our membership in Digital Twin Consortium, CBPP will have the ability to collaborate with industry and academic partners.”

The Digital Twin Consortium coalesces industry, government, and academia to drive consistency in vocabulary, architecture, security, and interoperability of digital twin technology. It advances the use of digital twin technology in many industries from aerospace to natural resources.

“We are excited to welcome CBPP to Digital Twin Consortium,” said Dan Isaacs, CTO, Digital Twin Consortium. “The input from the next-generation workforce will be extremely valuable as our members work together to advance the use of digital twins in various industries.”

“Ultimately, this affiliation will be enriching for our students, as there are applications for digital twin technology in all of our current fields of study – from finance to marketing and management,” Wisniewski said. “Our membership in Digital Twin Consortium will enable us to offer our students up-to-date knowledge about technologies that are poised to fundamentally change how we do business.”

Wisniewski has been a champion of highlighting the role artificial intelligence and digital twin technology plays in the future workforce. She developed the AI webinar series at CBPP, has been a distinguished speaker on digital twin technology for IBM’s global workforce, and is featured as a “Prolific Innovator” in an upcoming IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) publication.
