Innovative technologies broaden use of digital twins

In challenging and often disruptive times, manufacturers are relying on innovative technologies to deliver to global market needs.

Digital twins are virtual replicas of physical objects or systems. They use real-world data to run simulations of situations before actual devices are built and deployed, and predict different outcomes. Manufacturers then use this information to reduce maintenance issues, improve efficiency and production output.

AI empowers the workforce

Standardization is essential to the broad adoption of AI technologies

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the big buzz words in the tech industry. From robots to self-driving cars, digital twins and medical diagnosis, AI promises to deliver innovation on the scale of the discovery of fire and electricity, as one Silicon Valley chief executive officer (CEO) has put it. While it is not yet clear if this is truth or hyperbole, technical advances are coming rapidly.
