In episode 6 of The Pulse, join AEC influencer, Fred Mills—together with Salla Pallos of Microsoft, Tim Johnson of Buildmedia, and David Weir-McCall of Epic Games—to talk about the fast-growing world of digital twins and their impact on the future of architecture, engineering and construction.
In this episode, to be held on Wednesday, May 5 at 12 PM PDT time (3 PM EDT, 8 PM BST), the panel will talk about what digital twins are (and aren’t!). The discussion will be held around the following topics:
- How digital twins aid in large-scale decision-making
- How they can prevent costly mistakes in design
- What role digital twins can play in eliminating silos amongst engineers, stakeholders, and citizens, so infrastructure can be improved toward the highest benefit for all
The advent of real-time rendering has brought digital twins within reach for a variety of projects for the first time. Join these industry experts as they explore the many ways that digital twins will help us build better cities for tomorrow, and make sure to stay for the live Q&A at the end.
