Digital Twins are starting to be used in business applications, but they are still fairly cutting edge and not well understood even by Digital and Computing specialists. In this session I will explain the definition of a Digital Twin and its key components. Beyond the theory, we will walk you through a some example uses of Digital Twins in cities across the globe, but primarily will focus on the growing adoption of Digital Twins and 3D models by Local Authorities in the urban planning process.

The Urban Planning Process was developed in the 1950s and isn’t coping with the governments agenda for faster change and approvals of planning applications, and in this session you’ll see how Digital Twins, 3D models and virtual reality are being applied in that context and the benefits they bring.
