TECH Perspectives | Leveraging Digital Twin Technology

By Anna Liza Montenegro | Event, News

Microsol Resources’ TECH Perspectives conferences bring together thought-leaders at the forefront of building and construction innovation to discuss new and existing technologies that are reshaping the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.

This two-part TECH Perspectives’ online conference series was about Leveraging Digital Twin Technology.

Digital twins are quickly proving to be a key strategic accelerator for digital transformation, unlocking the value created by the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and analytics.

But what exactly is the buzz about? What is a digital twin? What elements define it? When can and should we apply this technology? What makes it so powerful? And how will its adoption influence our design process and ultimately our buildings and cities?

According to a Gartner report, with an estimated 21 billion connected sensors and endpoints by 2020, digital twins will exist for billions of things in the near future. Potentially billions of dollars of savings in maintenance repair and operation (MRO) and optimized IoT asset performance.

These questions, and more, are discussed during our TECH Perspectives webinar series on “Leveraging Digital Twin Technology” as we bring the conversation with:

  • Salla (Palos) Eckhardt, Director of Transformation Services | Microsoft
  • William Kwon, Principal, Information Technology | CallisonRTKL
  • Sarah Dreger, Senior Principal, Discipline Leader, Buildings Digital Practice | Stantec
Salla (Palos) Eckhardt, Director of Transformation Services | Microsoft WWC Construction Lead

Digital-Twin-Part 2 -650-300

Are you preparing to make an investment in digital twins? Digital twins are a novel and unique way to combine software and hardware. The projects require a heavy investment of both hard and soft costs. If you get it right, the payoff is worth the effort. Like with any new technology, change is constant and you may have a skills gap on your team.

The second part of this discussion will be moderated by:
