Video Link of Recorded Session

Our group intends to bring both practitioners and researchers together around tough design challenges (offered as engaging accounts by practitioners), and research of design practice (offered as academic knowledge by researchers).


This talk takes the audience on a journey of discovery through the world of the Digital Twin, covering its history, industrial applications, and common misconceptions. The talk explores the architecture of the digital twin in detail to elicit the enabling technologies and the underpinning research fields. The talk then considers the research challenges surrounding Digital Twins and examines the characteristics of the applications in which Digital Twins have and are being used. The talk culminates with observations from the Author’s participation in a range of national and international workshops aimed at establishing a research agenda for Digital Twins.
