Tour – Digital Twins

Humanity is increasingly building digital images of real objects. These “digital twins” are created for living objects, such as cells, plants, animals, people and ecosystems, as well as for non-living objects, for instance, food and supply chains. Digital twins are created by deploying sensors and new sensing techniques, in combination with increased data connectivity, interconnected computing systems and artificial intelligence. They can be used not only to understand, describe and analyse reality, but also to predict the future state of those objects. text in the module Advanced settings.
