Digital Twins through the Ages

A digital twin is like a videogame character that looks just like you, behaves like you, and lives in a digital world’s that’s a copy of your environment.

Engineers and scientists use this technology to create digital versions of real-life entities like cars, bridges, and even whole cities.

The digital twin is a computer model that’s exactly like the real thing. It can show how the real object behaves and predict how it’ll behave in different scenarios without testing the physical entity.

It helps in planning, fixing problems before they happen, and making better decisions based on rich insights.

Adoption of this technology is growing rapidly across industries, propelled by advances in IoT, AI, and cloud computing.

As it gets easier for organizations to create highly detailed and dynamic simulations of physical entities, digital twin capabilities are expanding way beyond their original applications for complex systems.

Someday, there might even be a digital twin of you. Really.

How did we get here?

Let’s take a step back.
