A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of a physical object or system from the real world in the digital world; or in other words, it serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or system. It is irrelevant whether the physical object or system already exists in the real world or will exist in the future.
Digital Twins are updated from real-time data, and uses simulation, machine learning and reasoning to help decision-making. Especially in industry digital twin simulations will enable the next era of industrial virtualization and AI.
Rev Lebaredian, VP of Omniverse and Simulation Technology at NVIDIA explains how a confluence of today's technologies has led to a big bang in large-scale virtual world simulation.
In a special guest feature, Michele Melchiorre, Senior Vice President at BMW Group for Production System, Technical Planning, Tool Shop and Plant Construction, will jointly take you on a journey through stages of BMW’s virtual production system and explore challenges and benefits of digital twin projects empowered by supercomputing algorithms.
