Digital Twins Why Now?

David McKee, Slingshot Simulations

As a digital representation of assets and operations help owners and operators make their workforce safer, improve productivity and reduce costs, we look at how the development of a nation of digital twins can join up and create a national digital twin. How will a national digital twin help society tackle the cross silo challenges of achieving carbon reduction targets, co-ordinate disaster response and improve the wellbing of society as a whole

Join us on the Digital Twin Hub at 10.30!
