Digital Twin - A Complete Guide For The Complete Beginner
Amazon
November 12, 2019
Digital twins or digital twin, as a concept, has been around for a while. Dr. Michael Grieves at the University of Michigan in the USA wrote about it in a white paper in 2002. NASA’s been long using digital twins for its space mission, as they (obviously) don’t have physical access to the equipment once it leaves our planet. Simulation and visualisation technologies have been in use for decades.

Yet, digital twins didn’t capture the imagination of enterprises until recently.

The proliferation of IoT (Internet of Things) devices, the ability to gather and manage big data, and the emergence of sophisticated analysis and prediction technologies, are now pushing the adoption of digital twins.

Gartner named digital twins as the Top 10 Strategic Technology for 2017, fuelling the imagination of enterprises. From there, it’s been a growth story.

What is a digital twin?
Why are they important?
Why should we need to note them?

Join us as we explore the answers to these questions in this book.
