Learn About the Hottest Trend in Tech Right Now: Digital Twins

January 24, 2020 - 7:04 pm

Imagine for a moment that you’ve been tasked with building a new machine. This machine will be complex and expensive. Before you build it, you and your team will design it on a computer and be able to accurately simulate all manner of future scenarios. For example, how might this new machine operate under different temperatures? What physical adjustments may make sense to make it run more efficiently?

A digital twin is a data-driven virtual replica of a physical thing.

Being able to accurately answer these questions and many more is now achievable by creating and using a fully functioning digital version of a product or service before it is built. It’s called a digital twin. It’s a data-driven virtual replica of a physical thing.

The value of digital twin technology is not limited to simply the design phase of products and services. A digital twin has a role in a number of areas including planning, design, building, operations, maintenance, and optimization. A digital twin is used beyond just building things too. It can help in diverse areas such as managing a city or in preparing a patient for an operation. 

For the past year, I’ve been developing a wide range of educational content to help people and their organizations understand the value and use of this technology.

Today, I’m pleased to share the release of my new online video course called Introduction to Digital Twins. Later I will be announcing more learning options including an online university course.
