  5. Hi IMF Community, You may find this workshop interesting: "4-Dimensionalism in Large Scale Data Sharing and Integration" Full details and Registration can be found at: https://gateway.newton.ac.uk/event/tgmw80 . The workshop will feature six presentations on state-of-the–art research from experts on 4-Dimensionalism in large scale data sharing and integration followed by a chaired Presenter's Panel. Each presentation will cover aspects of 4-Dimensionalism from the basics to Top Level Ontologies and Co-Constructional Ontology with each answering the question posed by the

BGS and Cambridge collaborated on modelling heat flow from basements to the surrounding strata and groundwater https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0886779818309635, http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/526141/ BGS and Dr Sauer Group worked on an integrated geospatial model at Farringdon Station https://www.icevirtuallibrary.com/doi/abs/10.1680/cpid.61293.431
  8. 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
  9. The idea of a Digital Twin [DT] needs to advance in a standardized and formal manner. As @DRossiter87 pointed out, this is necessary to "support the consistent adoption of, and interoperability between, digital twins for the built environment within the UK" To aid in this endeavour, it is useful to delineate the difference between the following terms: “DT General Use Case” [GUC]: a very short sentence, possibly consisting of two or three words – ideally a verb followed by a noun – ultimately concerned with the brief and blunt statement of the central business aim that is motivating t
  10. 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

    The National Digital Twin Legal Implications

    @James C, A very astute observation and excellent feedback. Thank you. You are entirely right that there is a story that needs to be told on how the emergence of an NDT works outside of the technical narrative that we have chosen to lead off with; keeping fairly close to home in recent times, to ensure that the message has the right starting point. There are of course significant areas of impact on areas such as finance and underwriting, where the availability of better decision making and risk visibility mechanisms could do lots for the reduction of WACC/hurdle rates for infrastructur

    Scientific publication on work to date

    Thanks for this Ian. We've taken a look at it, and this is clearly a SemWeb publication, and at the moment most of the work we are doing is in the Logic/Philosophical Ontology area, and other work in the Integration Architecture is not far enough advanced given the considerable effort involved in putting together a full academic paper. Perhaps next year.

    Interesting data related projects wanted for webinars

    @Paul Surin that sounds like there could be something of interest there. Is there a specific angle that has been researched? Which university has been involved?
  14. Noted. We've added this to our list to investigate in the New Year for extending the Top Level Ontologies, and/or Industry Data Models.

    people in the ontology

    @Matthew West Yes please, it was me that asked @Miranda Sharp the question. Thanks.
  16. Peter Curtis

    Where does the human fit in the high-level ontology?

    Thanks, yes I did ask her and thought I classified this question to it....
  17. People (eg. AGI members) were asked changes and opportunities in May, to help investigate the features and dynamics of the UK ‘geospatial data market’ or data ecosystem. 6 questions that were asked, and should have answers in the report. Changes in the UK geospatial data/services market: 1.How have data value chains evolved? 2.How have interactions between the public and private sector changed? 3.How are new types of geospatial data derived from an original source? Opportunities for better use of geospatial data across the economy; 4.What other marke
  18. The IMF Architects and IMF Developers Networks will be merging today into the IMF Community Network. Any members of the IMF Architects Community not currently in the IMF Developers will be invited to join that group. The newly merged group will be renamed 'IMF Community Network'. The merger is to ensure a single point for information and discussion and to rectify any confusion or boundary setting that was not helpful to the community.
  19. It is proposed that the Information Management Framework (IMF) for the creating of a National Digital Twin will consist of three technical elements: the Foundation Data Model (FDM), Reference Data Library (RDL) and Integration Architecture (IA). The IMF will underpin the creation of an environment which supports the use, management and integration of digital information across the life-cycle of assets. The IMF will also enable secure, resilient information sharing between organisations and will facilitate better decision making across sectors. The National Digital Twin Program

    Benefits Webinar - watch now!

    On the 20th October the NDTp were delighted to be joined by 100 attendees at a webinar to discuss the benefits of digital twins and connected digital twins. Miranda Sharp, NDTp Commons Lead, chaired a panel of experts: Leigh Dodds, ODI; Herman Heynes, Anmut; Peter Vale, Thames Tideway; Paul Hodgson, Greater London Authority The Webinar aimed to understand how to capture the benefit of digital twins and connected digital twins including; To create new revenue through data driven solutions Improved asset management Decision support and as
  21. The National Digital Twin Programme has initiated work to create a thin slice of the IMF for the Construction Innovation Hub, to support the development of CIH’s Platform Ecosystem. This thin slice of the IMF is called the FDM Seed. Fig 1.General classification of the TLO – taken from A Survey of Top-level Ontologies The first steps of the FDM Seed project is to survey the landscape, to investigate what ontologies and Data models are already in use out there; what they can do, their limitations, and assess what tools may be useful as a starting point for the FDM and th

    Collaborate on the IMF - join our new networks

    I think I have to agree with 'some people' mentioned above. With a prototype (or a mockup), it will be helpful for getting people's feedback, and help the process of concensus building. Otherwise, the idea or concept of national digital twin can be intengible. I guess "slice of an IMF " maybe considered a type of prototype. Would love to join both Communities to explore.
  24. The DT Hub warmly welcomes the endorsement from the ICE ICG White Paper: Covid-19 and the new normal for infrastructure systems – next steps for the National Digital Twin programme. https://www.ice.org.uk/news-and-insight/policy/covid-and-new-normal-for-infrastructure-systems The paper sets out that “It is impossible to expect a transformation of the infrastructure and construction industries to occur without widespread and coherent adoption of digital technologies and data… The rise of digital technologies has led to the concept of the digital twin, a representation of a physical in
  25. A very sunny and warm hello to fellow enthusiasts !!! I have been reflecting on the quite unbelievable Digital Twin journey over the last 2 years and having to pinch myself at the progress that has been made. Within Costain, Digital Twin is recognised in all corners as something our industry needs to do, in the big wide world the same can also be said with what seems to be an ever increasing global drive! Wanting to challenge not just myself but the community at large, here are a two 'big ticket' items of reflection where it feels as though we haven't yet fully succeeded: 1
  26. On Monday 3rd August, Matthew West, the Technical Lead for the NDTp, gave a presentation to the extended CDBB staff about the first steps the NDTp is taking towards an Information Management Framework (IMF), the FDM Seed. We thought it might be helpful to share it here so you can see how the current work fits with our wider goals. https://youtu.be/NyWfbocL1es

    Have your Say: The IMF Pathway Consultation

    Hi @Pete Matthews, The online form: https://www.cdbb.cam.ac.uk/consultation-pathway-towards-information-management-framework is the only and official form by which to respond to the consultation. If you wanted to gather feedback from across Mott based on the form questions that would be most helpful. Thanks.
