Digital Twins and Data Ontologies

December 2, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm GMT

Digital Twins and Data Ontologies

“Digital Twins enabling sustainable development in infrastructure and the built environment and the role of ontologies.”

“Digitalisation and the tools available in the era of Industry 4.0 are enabling many organisations to develop perspectives and strategies on Digital Twins which will bring us closer to understanding how to develop, operate and adapt infrastructure and the built environment. This is essential to provide near real-time agility and responsiveness to prevent things going wrong, and to respond to changes in demand, but also to plan for sustainable development more effectively than ever before.”

“This will lead to better outcomes for people, business and the environment through better insight of the trade-offs across our infrastructure and city interventions.”

“Before we rush into Digital Twins we need to get on the same page, or at least find some way of sharing how we each understand our bit of knowledge of the smart city. This means we need to share our ontologies which may not yet have been explicitly stated, and we need to figure out the basis of our ontologies – what assumptions we make, what we can and can’t discover, and what we want to achieve.”

“Ontologies are essential for us to be able to connect Digital Twins created for different reasons and with different assumptions: for example, route planning and smart motorways.”

“This event will share exciting work on Digital Twins and ontologies as well as enabling facilities and ways of thinking.”

“There will be the opportunity to ask speakers about their talks.”

“After a virtual coffee break, you can join one of three workshops (transport, energy, water) where discussions will be led by an industry expert and you can have your say by adding your own virtual post-it notes to an on-line collaborative whiteboard.”
