  1. Visual intelligence is the ability to capture, connect and communicate information about spaces in real time. Then to instantly transform it through visualisation techniques into accurate, accessible, actionable data useable by anyone that needs. A process embedded in the simple digital twin but enabled by emerging technologies, specifically the digital integration between devices, enhanced by immersive technology and artificial intelligence. Think of visual intelligence as a compass. Without it, a vessel can’t make the most of its assets, is uncertain where it’s headed, how it will be impacted by the environment and how it can reach its destination with maximum efficiency and care for its crew. Businesses have to take certain actions to increase ROI, communicate to and manage disparate teams, automate with confidence, set out clear directions and grow faster. Connected and integrated data translated into visual intelligence enables these actions. It is the compass. Attached are some insight from a few companies who started with a simple digital twin – a connection of data – but who have embraced visual intelligence and what it means for them National Digital Twin presentation (1.1).pdf

    The Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo) project from the National Digital Twin programme is holding a webinar to launch the project to a global audience in conjunction with the COP26 climate conference on 2nd November at 10:30-12. This webinar replaces the weekly Gemini Call, and the DT Hub community are encouraged to sign up, as well as inviting their wider networks to attend. The climate emergency is here now, and connected digital twins are an important part of achieving net zero and climate resilience. The CReDo team will present how the project meets this urgent need, and will premiere two exciting outputs – a short film and an interactive visualisation of how connected data across three infrastructure networks can provide better insights and lead to better resilience of the system-of-systems overall. Only if we come together to securely share data across sectors can we plan a smarter, greener, more resilient built environment. Book your spot today! Keep an eye on the DT Hub website for updates about the CReDo programme.
  3. Digital Twins are a way of getting better insights about the assets you commission, design, construct or manage, enhancing their performance and the outcomes for people who use them. But how do you get started creating one? What are the questions you need to ask yourself and potential challenges you’ll face? What lessons have been learned that may have slipped through the cracks of academic papers and published case studies? ‘Digital Twin Journeys’ will present lessons learned by our researchers in digital twin projects enabled by the Construction Innovation Hub. Culminating in a report for industry professionals who are involved with developing their first digital twins (March 2022), this series of outputs will highlight in various engaging formats many of the processes, decisions and insights our researchers have explored during their own digital twin journeys. Hear from the researchers themselves about how they have developed digital twin processes and tools, and the key themes that run through their projects. The outputs will be shared on the DT Hub blog, and will be collated on a dedicated page on the CDBB website. But first, we want to hear from you! Let us know in the comments what you still want to know about the process of developing digital twins.

    Planning Golden Thread

    Click here for video As citizens and professionals we accept that the planning process is there to uphold standards of safety, aesthetic, technical and social requirements. However, the planning process has suffered from many years of tinkering and making good. We now have a planning process that is dependent on outdated approaches and incompatible with the rest of the development industry. It is slow, which presents problems in the UK where we need to build, a lot, quickly. Planning risks preventing this building from happening at pace and of a higher quality. This situation presents, of course, a golden opportunity for a fully digitised end-to-end process which could: reduce the planning bottleneck automate those parts of the process that can be Increase transparency of the process open up new means of engaging stakeholders with the planning process, by for example visualising proposed developments and so increasing understanding allow us to see projects in context, with other proposed developments, rather than in isolation allow access to, and sharing of, crucial data (like structural and fire safety information) facilitate the use of modern methods of construction most importantly, give a more accurate understanding of build costs and timescales In order to bring this about, we have to standardise and digitise (as far as it is possible and desirable) the rules under which designs are created, assessed, and ultimately built. At the same time we have to find ways to generate and use interoperable data. This problem is what the group from Bryden Wood, 3D Repo, London Borough of Southwark and CDBB have been working on. We have developed a model which is open and based on the established BIM Collaboration Framework (BCF). It presents the data associated with planning so that it can be queried and interrogated. You can see a summary in the video above and read more about it here; Planning Golden Thread statement attached below 3DRepo technical write up Bryden Wood technical write up Bryden Wood Schema We know that many of the barriers associated with a change like this will be cultural rather than technical so we are seeking partners in the planning and development system who would like to test the model and collaborators who would like to fund the next stage of development. Please get in touch! You can also hear more about this on the Gemini Call on Tuesday, 18 May at 10:30 with Miranda Sharp and Jack Ricketts of Southwark Council. Link to DT Hub Calendar

  6. (8) Data wrangling - importing 300+ datasets a quarter - YouTube Is this making the case for bread and butter digital transformation?
  7. “Data that is loved, tends to survive.” – Kurt Bollacker In our quest to transition ourselves from a nation that simply creates data, to one where we understand and exploit its value to the betterment of society, we still have much to learn about what constitutes ‘quality’ in data. The National Digital Twin programme wants to explore how quality can be defined, and how we can begin to build the tenets and processes for high-quality data into the way we operate in our daily lives, our corporate environments, and our national institutions. This network has been created as a place to focus discussion around how our collective approach to data governance, value and quality must evolve. It provides a central point for the storage of resources that are relevant to each topic, and a forum for the open sharing of ideas, research and case studies. We will explore case studies, debate how we have learned (or not) from the mistakes of the past, and try to bring together consensus over what constitutes best in class practices for governance, quality and ultimately, value. To help in guiding and shaping the work being done, the voices of broader stakeholder groups, expert communities and organisations is invaluable. To this end, the NDTp is establishing this new network, through the DT Hub. Who should join? This is an open group accessible to any member of the DTHub. This is an actively developing area and broad participation is widely encouraged from individuals from all backgrounds. Admin & Security This Community will be supported by CDBB and the National Digital Twin programme by a network manager (James Harris) and supported by the core NDTp team. Please note that due to the open nature of the DT Hub, the community is not suitable for the discussion of sensitive or commercial information.
  8. The National Digital Twin Legal Implications It was with great foresight that the Digital Framework Task Group (DFTG) recognised in advance of furthering the National Digital Twin (NDT) programme that the legal implications would be plentiful and required debate at a high level. This proactive attitude to the legal side of the NDT is intended to provide initial thoughts and guidance for the DFTG going forward. Lawyers are often seen as a last resort and are therefore too often forced to work reactively. This fresh approach by the DFTG will hopefully flush out potential pitfalls and provoke further legal debate in this fast moving and highly exciting area of technology. An initial group of leading private practice lawyers gave their time to a series of legal roundtables to discuss and debate the possible legal outcomes of the NDT. The following participants brought their expertise in their individual practice areas: · Sarah Rock – Gowling WLG – Construction · Ian Mason – Gowling WLG – Financial Regulation · Diana France – HFW – Energy · Tamara Quinn – Osborne Clarke LLP – IP and Data Privacy · Clare Fielding – Town Legal LLP – Planning · Fleur Ruda – MHCLG Legal Advisors – Government and Public Good · Alan Stone – RPC LLP – Insurance · Serena Tierney – Veale Wasbrough Vizards LLP – IP and Technology · Naveen Vijh – BCLP Law LLP – Funding and Finance The group met on four occasions, chaired by Sarah Rock and organised by Miranda Sharp and James Harris who led the NDTp Commons stream alongside Rachel Judson. The lawyers debated the initial responses about the NDT from each practice area, looked at the live National Underground Asset Register, had a general discussion to bring the various streams together and finally debated a theoretical case study of a digital twin. The roundtable discussions have been converted into a report which was presented to the DFTG and is now available for review on the DT Hub. The four main outcomes for further discussion were: 1. Governance. The legal side of the governance of the NDT was a point raised again and again during the roundtable sessions when looking at various aspects of the NDT. The legal experts felt there was a gap in governance which could perhaps best be filled with legislation or taking mandatory action at Government level. The legal experts felt that a top down approach would best work for this. There was concern to avoid competitive advantage being given to some, or even being perceived as such. 2. Early Engagement. The lawyers were all thrilled to be involved so early on with the NDT and saw it as very wise for the DFTG to be proactive in the legal space, as opposed to the all too often path taken with legals of being reactive. The legal experts felt that a continued engagement during the early years of the NDT would be very sensible. In addition, it was suggested that other non-technical areas also might benefit from early engagement including specifically insurance, finance and regulators. 3. Interaction of Stakeholders. It was highlighted that there are plenty of legal challenges for the interoperability of the NDT. It was felt that existing contracts and methods of procurement would need to adapt to respond to the changes ahead. It was also noted that the DFTG needs to ensure its thinking is always a tad wider than the NDT. This was highlighted in particular in the energy sector where the interaction between the UK and international operators is critical. 4. IPR, data and access. The IP created in the NDT was debated at length and needs to be further considered. This point circles back to point one above. The governance of the NDT needs to set out clearly where the IP sits. Further the levels of access ought to be decided in a top down fashion. Liability and obligations regarding the NDT can be assessed and allocated but the legal experts felt that the Government lead approach would be crucial. Overall, the legal experts posed various questions for the DFTG to consider in its implementation of the NDT. It was suggested that none of the issues raised by the experts were too difficult to resolve legally. The project was deemed achievable legally but only with continued legal engagement for further consideration, issues to be raised and ideas for solutions to be formed. Please do take the time to read and consider the legal report and the DFTG welcomes further comment on this. The DFTG recognises the time commitment of the legal experts involved and once again would like to thank them for their efforts and their collaborative approach. Roundtable Outcomes Report v1.0.pdf
  9. 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.
  10. There are two reports launced by Geospatial Commission on 2020-11-24. They are keen to hear from people's feedbacks.

  11. Enterprises creating digital twins have a need to understand the benefits their digital twins bring to their own operation but also the benefits which accrue to their customers, supply chain, local community, industry network and relevant government bodies.  An understanding and harnessing of these benefits has the potential to drive not only individual business cases but also impact regional development spend, regulatory price controls and national policy.  In response to this need, CDBB commissioned a piece of work to create a logic model to find a consistent way to describe the benefits of connecting digital twins.  That model has the potential to deliver both the forward view to guide investment decisions in connecting digital twins and also a retrospective assessment of the benefits achieved by connecting them. Read the CDBB blog, What is the point of a National Digital Twin?  to find out more about the logic model The NIC’s Data for the Public Good report and other publications have described benefits to the economy and enterprises from the sharing of data in a secure and resilient way.  As such, the National Digital Twin programme was set up to create the Information Management Framework to enable that secure resilient data sharing in the built environment and beyond.    The vision for the National Digital Twin is not a central repository of all data rather it is a ] principles principles based means to connect data or individual twins to create both public good and value.   The challenge is to understand where the greatest value can be created from the connection of individual twins.   The NDTp will be running a webinar on 20th October where we will discuss the challenges of valuing data assets, the good they deliver, and how connected digital twins may change the way we do business.   To receive the link to the webinar, register via Eventbrite; https://ndtbenefits.eventbrite.co.uk The Webinar will be held, 11:00 – 12:00, Tuesday 20th October, via Zoom Webinar Hosting and chairing the webinar will be the National Digital Twin programme’s Commons Stream Lead, Miranda Sharp.

  12. 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 - Collaboration - now don't get me wrong, the collaboration from DT has been truly exceptional and is, I believe, changing industry. However are we still creating digital dots that are yet to be properly connected? For NDT to really be successful we need to reach a point where open conversations can take place between Gov, academia and industry in a way that has not traditionally happened. Discussions that are 'warts and all' that would not normally happen between say an owner / operator and supplier, or between Government and industry. We risk restricting the value of DT which will verge on the magical if truly transparent. 2. - Engineering mindset - No surprise here that as an engineering led industry the focus with DT's appears to be largely engineering focused. In a recent piece of work looking at data trusts, the legal complexity of scaled data sharing has been eye opening. What if a decision is made based on data from say 10 organisations, and that decision leads to an issue because of some low quality or incorrect data, who is then liable? Would it be possible to identify the bad quality data? Exposure to leading research has identified the complexity in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, accountability and security in relation to collaborative data sharing. It was also interesting to hear about work by the Financial Conduct Authority looking at what a Data Conduct Authority might look like, where data might be monetised. As we look past the engineering foundations, there is a lot to do. I hope people do not view any of the above negatively, this all screams opportunity and is only natural as we lead the world in the development of scaled, federated Digital Twins. What other big challenges do people think need some focus? Regards Kevin

    Early analysis by the Geospatial Commission suggests that more accessible and better quality location data in infrastructure and construction could be worth over £4 billion per year and accidental strikes on underground assets are estimated to cost £1.2bn a year in direct and indirect cost. One of our first initiatives is the creation of a National Underground Asset Register. This event is for organisations and authorities who own and operate buried assets, as well as those who excavate on their behalf. Gaining your input on our future plans is extremely important and valuable to us so please do come along to hear more about our programme and take the opportunity to give your feedback.
  14. When asked by a relatively senior member of staff here what the Digital Twin is all about, and why they should care, I pulled together some SmartArt (pictured) to try to explain the component parts of an infrastructure organisation's twin. Keen to get the wider community's thoughts on this approach. Digital Twins are having a bit of moment here at Highways England, to the extent that our principle risk is not a lack of twins, but a surfeit of incompatible twins. I'm beginning to think that the ‘Digital Twin’ of a complex organisation such as HE will actually need to function as a hierarchical system of systems. We need to understand how our organisation functions and what it looks like from a conceptual data perspective (the Schema), we then need a single source of truth, preferably one structured as a graph to reflect the Ontology (the Data), and finally there will be the specific manifestations of the above for different parts of the business (e.g. BIM, digital product catalogues, design, porfolio management etc. etc.) which should be united by the common schema and data above.
  15. The National Digital Twin Programme hosted a webinar on Monday 8th June 2020 to discuss and answer questions about the recently published Pathway towards an Information Management Framework. We were delighted to receive many questions during the webinar, and hope that those the panel were able to answer helped deepen understanding and expand interest in the Information Management Framework and the National Digital Twin Programme. We have added those, and the questions we couldn't get to in the available time, as topics within this forum, collated by subject. We would like to invite you to add your suggestions and to take part in the discussion on the DT Hub around the development of the National Digital Twin. We will use the discussions here to compliment the Open Consultation being run through the CDBB website on the IMF Pathway.. As Mark Enzer, the Head of the NDT Programme, said in the webinar, we need to continue to build consensus through collaboration, and progress through sharing and learning together. For those who missed the webinar, a video of the webinar is now available and attached below is a transcript of the the event. IMF Pathway Webinar 08062020 Transcript FINAL.pdf
