The world is complicated, and convergence factors across multiple domains including science, technology, economics, geopolitics and more are only making it more so. Today’s ecosystems are highly connected and interdependent. Rehearsing the future must be informed with insight, foresight, and technologies to enable us to probe and learn. As such, one outcome executives and organizations should be rehearsing in 2023 is digital twins. I see a tipping point coming where the technology becomes rapidly adopted across industries and makes a measurable impact not only in business, but society at large. Digital twin technology enables the creation of a real-time, virtual counterpart of something in the physical world. With 20 years of improvements in AI, IoT and other technologies, digital twins have evolved beyond their roots in manufacturing to be able to recreate nearly anything in the real world – from a smart city to a human organ.Frank Diana – Digital Twins Reach a Tipping Point & Save Lives
