Digital twin spotlight: Cyber-physical systems: hypebeast or digital panacea?

03 Mar 2022
Machine Learning & AI

Capital-intensive industries (infrastructure, built environment, transport, healthcare) have a profound impact on people’s lived experiences. The decisions that we make when we apply technology in this space can result in both massive benefits, and dangerous unintended consequences. Cyber-physical systems – such as Digital Twins – can help us to better understand the risks and benefits behind our investment in infrastructure. This session will use case studies and discussions with practitioners to answer the following questions:

• How to stop hyped technologies becoming solutions looking for problems?
• Whose problems are we actually trying to solve with these technologies?
• How do we account for groups who are left out of the decision-making?
• How do we measure the success of the application of cyber-physical systems?
