Digital Twin Computing involves not only creating a digital parallel for real world but also facilitating the interaction between other digital twins as well the real world. A digital-physical hybrid society, perhaps reminding the already well known concept of “hardware in the loop” could digitally replicate and mutate copies of digital entities that are copied of real entities. By doing so it can lead to the design of mutated digital twins that do not exist in the real world.
Interestingly this can be used from studying viruses in medicine to modelling electricity infrastructure in engineering.
This speech refers to three main developments in Deep Learning, which is a major direction of the 21st century AI emphasizing their relevance to broader set of applications and in particular to digital twin computing.
