    Call for experts: BSI Digital Twin panel

    I do not see anyone thinking on the general public - how learn and interact the communities in our society with this new digital world? How get benefits and supported by DT the social sector and the NGO? Where is the system for SME to leapfrog with this big shift? They all isolated as they do not have so much knowledge and financial power to keep up with the TECH innovation speed.
  5. hello as a masters student currently I'm doing my thesis related to digital twin, and I just proposed a cloud based tool that can control and monitor IoT device through cloud using BIM Model File. I've tested the tool and it is now working but my worry is which standard or ontology that states the relation between BIM and IoT device specially for Controlling? thanks in advance
  6. Hi Kihwan, thanks for reaching out. I will get in touch directly to further discuss. Thanks Alexandra
  7. Hello, DTHub community, My name is Kihwan Seo, who conducts policy research on national spatial data infrastructure and digital twins for the Korean government. Recently, digital twins have become an important topic in the Korean government as well. I think there is a lot to learn from the UK's national digital twin programme. Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements(KRIHS) and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport(MOLIT) are planning to hold an international conference on GeoAI and digital twin on July 22. We are looking for someone to give a keynote speech on the topic of the UK's national digital twin programme. In fact, I sent a request message to Mark Enzer, the chair of CDBB DFTG, through DTHub's message function a few days ago, but I haven't received a reply yet. If anyone has contact with Mark Enzer, please help. If Mark Enzer is not available, you can recommend someone else. This conference will be held online and can be replaced with pre-recorded video files if live video conferencing is not available. Keynote speaker will be paid a presentation allowance. Thanks in advance, Kihwan Seo (Ph.D. in Geography) Research Fellow Spatially Enabled Society Research Division Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements (KRIHS) Tel: +82-44-960-0650 Cel: +82-10-6571-3534 Email: khseo@krihs.re.kr https://eng.krihs.re.kr/

  9. New standards are being developed in the field of Digital Twin. The international technical committee is currently defining concepts and terminology and researching use cases. The aim is to deal with horizontal issues impacting on digital twin in any sector, so we would welcome representation from all types of industry. Come and join other UK stakeholders to help shape these international standards and contribute your own ideas for best practice. Let’s make sure that the outputs are relevant for UK industry. Get in touch!
  10. Seren, I'm just going to drop a couple of links to projects that integrate environmental data with other sources of data, and were flagged to me while I was sourcing information and participants for the workshop: Flood Damage Economic Model: https://www.eco-x.tech/portfolios/fdem/ HELIX: https://www.eco-x.tech/portfolios/helix/ (I believe this is what Anglia Water are using. There should be more information elsewhere about this project on the DT Hub site if you look through the case studies and other threads.) The Environment Agency uses data from various sources to understand the impact of interventions on flood risk reduction (or at least reducing the risk of damage). They'll have published some of that information online in reports, but I don't have any links to hand.
  11. Thank you Kirsten, flood modelling is also something I'm interested in, and an area where I have previously done some research. I'm in the very early stages of the internship so still defining the scope of the research project at the moment. Any tips/links are much appreciated!
  12. Hi, Seren! It's due out next week. Thanks for your interest! I agree with Henry, the space where this is most advanced is in water utilities, and also flood modelling. The Environment Agency, especially Karen Allford, would be a great resource for you on this. Best wishes,

    Why we need Quantum Digital Twins

    What if we build a collective - foresight - backcasting - platform with collective intelligence and integrated into a multi layered social network environment? See layer 1
  14. You can criticize Ontopop but you can't compare with your very expensive Graphshare as you provide only DEMO for free and the next price step so high for most of the SME or individuals. Also there are only bla-bla on Graphshare website with NO ANY exact information or video illustration. Ontopop available to everyone in our society for free with full features and can extend and customize as you wish. Thank you @Ian Gordon - (But your GitHub link doesn't works and NO any Ontopop repository there.) https://github.com/hyperlearningai/ontopop https://github.com/leipzig/ontopop

    Planning Golden Thread

    Hi Rachel Thank you for your answer for my comment. I suggest make a research about what people think of the UK housing design. You will get quite negative feedback from those who come from Europe or other developed countries. This kind of template building style not a big tourist attraction. Most of the houses built with weak walls by big housing construction companies as you can't hang on any relatively heavy furniture or TV set. Also the garages size are too small for the modern cars but nobody willing to change on this problem and all new garages used for storage only. That is a comedy.
  17. Hi Henry, Thanks for getting in touch. That would be great - sounds exciting. I'll drop you a message with my contact details.
  18. Hi Seren, there has been a lot done in the Water utilities space that I know about. Working from the water catchment all the way down through the complex network of pumps and down to the treatment works is a perfect use case for digital twins. Anglian Water and Welsh Water are the two water utilities that I know the most about and could put you in touch with someone.
  19. Hi, I'm an undergraduate Civil Engineering student at the University of Bristol and I'm currently working as a research intern on the subject of Digital Twins for the next 7 weeks. I'm looking to focus the research around the interface between Green Infrastructure and Digital Twins (and the natural/ built environment), and assess where the current state of research/ knowledge is in this area. If there is anyone who knows of any interesting case studies or works in this area please get in contact/post in this thread! Also - Kirsten, did the report summarising the insights from the workshop spoken about above get posted anywhere? Thank you!

    Planning Golden Thread

    Hi Humanner I am not a housing or planning expert, so this is a bit speculative; Large pieces of land are put up for sale by farmers and councils for housing developments as one large lot Large parcels of land need huge investment so mostly taken up by big housing construction companies that have a portfolio of house designs for the site. What Jack along with 3D Repo and Bryden Wood are proposing, above, will give individuals better access to the planning process alongside the bigger actors, to take advantage of smaller available sites to develop houses of their own design. As to whether the UK have the creativity and nice designs available, I suppose you'll have to ask Kevin McLeod on Grand Designs.

    Test Engineering and DTs

    Thanks for posting the slides Alexandra and apologies again to all for the internet bandwidth problem that I experienced during the call today. The Defence Sector is actively looking at ways to use DTs. It is coming to this from a strong background in Modelling and Simulation. There is opportunity for useful 2-way transfer of information and knowledge-sharing that would be beneficial to all participants. My suggestion is that a Lifecycle V&V network would be a good way to facilitate that, but all suggestions welcomed! Dave Murray

    Test Engineering and DTs

    Dave has presented at today's Gemini call his idea of setting up a new network on 'Lifecycle V&V (Validation and Verification)' centred on Evaluation and Testing. Please find attached a few slides that will provide you with more details on the purpose and the objectives of this new network. For more details please get in touch directly with @Dave Murray.

  23. Our fundamental concepts, tools and platforms in which we design and implement information systems prevent us from making them flexible and “organic”. They tie us to their components and versions, hide the structures in huge text files, get more rigid and fragile by every change. To step forward, address the true living and evolving nature of every system, we need a radically new approach. This would be important before start solving any particular task, but essential in mitigating critical situations like the Corona crisis.

  25. Change requires the will of the people. The success of any strategy execution will be determined by how well you engage people and manage the transition process. Without the right communication, education, and operational support to execute your strategy, you can expect to receive resistance to change. A multitude of variables will determine the success of achieving your goals within your target time frame:- Current state gaps and cultural competency- Size of organization and number of locations- Cultural context and varying sensibilities- Strategic alignment of needs and expectations- Commitment of resources and prioritization- Stakeholder engagement and development- Governance and performance managementMany change initiatives fail due to leadership’s lack of understanding of how systemic change occurs, or because of mismanaged expectations for what is required to facilitate change. Before embarking on your transformation journey, develop a change strategy to migrate your organization from the current state to your future state. Inform employees of the case for change, how it will directly impact them, and set expectations for their role and purpose in the transformation. When developing new strategies or setting new goals, your first question should be, “Is our culture capable of…?” Answering this question in advance can mean the difference between success and failure, and in many cases, very costly failures. It is best first to understand your cultural competency and what is needed to ensure success. To operationalize new policies and practices across all roles and functions, you must understand any potential obstacles or resistances to overcome. Systemically assessing cultural needs and experience delivery gaps is essential to building a culture that enables you to live up to our aspirations of your brand and to realize your purpose. 70% of all change initiatives fail. The primary reason for such high failure rates is due to the low cultural competency of an organization or community; your ability to understand, communicate, collaborate, and relate to each other. And, the ability to unify around a common purpose and be equipped to self-organize and govern to evolve towards your desired future state. When assessing cultural competency, this list represents the most critical and impactful mechanisms to drive cultural sustainability and continuous improvement. Nearly every gap prohibiting success will fall into one of these buckets. To close gaps preventing you from delivering a purposeful experience, engage stakeholders in solutioning. For all the same reasons you should include stakeholders in the experience design process, it is equally as important to include them in the solutioning process to close experience delivery gaps. Creating input and feedback loops with stakeholders at critical points of strategic implementation is an agile way of evolving your brand experience with purpose and intention. This ensures close gaps most important and valuable to the evolving needs and expectations of your stakeholders. Additionally, this will help you prioritize and allocate of resources. Building on the value of co-creation. Traditional organizational and governmental structures are antiquated and can not meet the increasing challenges and demands of our highly complex and rapidly changing world. It is not enough to introduce new policies, systems and practices and expect people to automatically change their behavior and adopt the new ways of being. It takes commitment and intention to disseminate new strategic initiatives. To mitigate change resistance, it is important to consider people's emotional needs. Demonstrated here, these are the various stages of decision-making we all go through – whether consciously or subconsciously – that will determine whether or not we remain passionate and committed to a relationship based on the value someone or something provides in the relationship. Conduct empathy mapping to determine the most effective ways to serve people's emotional needs at each interaction and touchpoint. Understanding people’s emotional journey helps you to empathize with their needs and resistances to help navigate how best to engage them to build relationships that cultivates passion and commitment for your mutual success. Satisfying the emotional journey is necessary to procure commitment, build loyalty and advocacy, and drive adoption of new policies, systems and practices. Culture is shaped by the ideas we share, stories we tell, and behaviors we observe that influence how we think, feel, and act in varying situations and environments. The cultural components listed here are demonstrated both individually and collectively, shaping both individual and collective perceptions, emotions, and behaviors. For people to adopt new policies and practices, you must inspire them with passion and pride, and empower facilitating actors to contribute to the change management process. Change occurs when passion and commitment align with common purpose. Everyone has individual needs, values, beliefs, and emotions that affect how they think, feel, and act in varying situations and environments. An effective stakeholder engagement strategy meets people where they are and aligns them to a common purpose and future state vision, and includes them in decisions that impact them. The practice of developing sustainable organizational cultures directly impacts half of the SDGs. Developing a sustainable organizational culture is one of the most socially responsible actions a company can take to support the global sustainability agenda. SDGs directly impacted by culture design highlighted with boarders. For any experience innovation, cultural development or change initiative, how you engage your people managers and influencers will be critical to your success. Include facilitating actors in strategic decisions that impact their functions and departments, and hold them accountable to creating shared value, and establishing standard operating procedures to achieve future state goals. Culture Design, our purpose is to improve lives through relationships and experiences, and by leading with our core values - Care. Care for our work. Care for our clients. Care for our colleagues. Care for our communities. Care for our planet. Care for humanity. Care for ourselves.
  26. Hi Mark, Thank you for your links. I'm so happy to see these visions like: (A paradigm shift is required: we must recognise infrastructure as a system of systems and manage it accordingly.) Your documents also validate our project idea as most of the details are in our research database as well. What we try to establish an operating system of the society to help them in collaboration and collective actions based on TRUE information. As our companies already have methods, tools to manage them operation but for the community do not have similar opportunity yet. That is why we would extend the present limited functions of social networks to give tools for the society for a better way to interact with each other across different segments. From foresight to policy improvement and recommendation. Seems to me our project find the HOMETOWN in this community. Would be great to have a chat in the near future. Kind regards Janos Deak
