Digital Twins: Current State and Future Potentials

Welcome to follow this recording of an Aalto EE Master Class for a two-hour deep dive into the world of digital twins, the ongoing revolution in asset-centric information management. In this master class you will gain comprehensive understanding of what digital twins are, where they are going, and why they are essential for your organization. 

Led by Aalto University experts this master class will dive deeply to the different roles and uses of digital twins, and explain how they enable asset-centric data management and cross-company data sharing. We will review the standardization landscape of digital twins and recognize that it is the right time to act in order to have an influence. We will also learn the difference between digital twins and Digital Product Passports and how they are the main regulation driver for networked digital twins. 

Note! This is an on-demand recording of the live online Master Class organized on 24.5.2024. After registration, you will receive a link to the recording.
