Smart City Digital Twin Workshop

RSVP

Overview

A digital twin is defined as a…"pairing of virtual and physical worlds [that] allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they occur, prevent downtime, and even plan for the future using simulations.” (Forbes, 2017).

As such a digital twin’s potential in improving urban operations, efficiencies and resilience are far-reaching. There is a great deal of interest in Smart City Digital Twins in academia, industry and government. We want to take a moment to share ideas among researchers at Georgia Tech, identify synergies and opportunities for collaboration, and discuss how through our combined efforts we can establish a leadership role in the formation and development of this new interdisciplinary field of inquiry.
