  2. The Good Homes Alliance seeks to drive up standards, performance and quality in new homes built in the UK. We have developed a concept built upon existing IP that digitises an assured performance process to enable a comprehensive outcome that will enable net zero (and other desirable outcomes such as health and wellbeing of occupants) to be met and verified. This concept would address a number of issues currently being discussed and deabted by the investment/finance/insurance/warranty sectors and would upskill design teams and constructors because of the built in on demand training that accomp
  3. TechUK’s Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) published a landmark report- ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’- on Thursday 25th February. The purpose of this report is to drive consensus around terminology, highlight key prizes associated with digital twinning across the UK, and to set out strategic recommendations for industry and Government as to how the UK’s digital twin ecosystem can progress and evolve long-term. The report also sets out a handful of recommendations, including that there should be a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary co-ordinating body to promo
  4. The digital future of the built environment relies on the people that will create it. In our integrated world, over two thirds of UK leaders say their organisation is facing a digital skills gap (Microsoft, 2020) - we have a challenge and opportunity to close this gap whilst realising the benefits of the National Digital Twin. Working as part of the Mott MacDonald and Lane4 team appointed by the Construction Innovation Hub, we have developed a Skills and Competency Framework to raise awareness of the skills and roles needed to deliver a National Digital Twin. The skills and roles id
  5. Hello There are papers by AMRC (https://www.amrc.co.uk/files/document/404/1604658922_AMRC_Digital_Twin_AW.pdf), Leading Edge Forum (https://leadingedgeforum.com/insights/digital-twins-a-guide-to-the-labyrinth/), and Iotics is also featuring a series of podcasts (https://www.iotics.com/about/digital-reflections/) by thought leaders which are most inspiring in regard to the ongoing definition debate, future roadmap and art of the probable. I find these helpful. Best wishes Sophie
  6. Good question! I consider the development of digital ecosystem or digital infrastructure can learn a lot from the physical infrastucture, including the skillsets and career paths: Similar to physical infrastucture, we need, CEO/CTO/CFO .. designer, architect, projectment, testing, engineers, services, serurity, human resources, customer care...... to name a few. Add data/digital in front of existing roles can form a good starting point, and see some gaps. To address the gap, actions are louder than any words. We should break seemingly unachieve ambitious targets into small and manag

    Absolutely! Apologies I missed the last hub
  8. We live in a world abundant in data and technology. There are numerous ways to fake data of all kinds (think deep fake). Envisioning a future where data outputs become as common as a PDF report how do we enable the skills around critical thinking that will allow data professionals to know when something doesn't look right even though it may have already gone through data quality and data audit checks. Just a thought at this point but I would be interested in others thoughts.
  9. I saw that tweet, I would have preferred an option that said "it's an A N A L O G Y" ... well it is at the moment anyway!

    The creation of digital twins will, with little doubt, impact construction sector suppliers (e.g. refurbishment specialists and trades contractors) in the services they render. It will place on such firms the responsibility to acquire technological capabilities to examine digital twins of assets they need to work on. Data from the ONS shows that a majority of firms that provide such services are SMEs. Research focusing on technology adoption emphasise how SMEs in the construction sector are particularly challenged on many fronts in trying to make technological transitions. Resource constraints
  12. During our research activities within the DT Hub, several barriers relating to the use of digital twins were identified. This blog post, which looks at digital skills, reflects on skill as a barriers and considers related issues so that we can discuss how they may be addressed. As organizations develop a wide array of datasets and supporting tools, a key concern has been the capability of the people using these resources to make decisions and take action. To do so, these people need to be sufficiently skilled. Industry reports, such as the Farmer Review, have consistently i
