The Digital Twin Consortium and AIoT User Group announced this week that they have entered into a liaison agreement to create and develop digital twin enabling technologies to accelerate the adoption and monetisation of these systems.
Both parties have agreed to the following:
- Aligning work in Digital Twin Consortium horizontal domains for adoption within vertical environments and use cases, proof of concepts, and programmes
- Making AI and IoT best practices available for digital twin practitioners through frameworks and training
- Creation of open-source reference implementations and solution blueprints
- Realising interoperability by harmonising technology components and other elements
- Collaborating on standards requirements
Dan Isaacs, CTO at Digital Twin Consortium, said: “We are excited about our collaboration with the AIoT User Group.
“Their network of AI and IoT practitioners, good practices, and framework for smart, connected products will be key as we work together to advance the use of digital twins.”
Dirk Slama, chairman of AIoT User Group, said: “Digital twins are the key design paradigm for any company dealing with the digitalisation of physical products or equipment.
“AI and IoT are fundamental both in creating as well as utilizing Digital Twins.
“Being able to build on Digital Twin Consortium’s strong digital twin foundation and partner network make them the perfect liaison for us.”
Prith Banerjee, steering committee member at Digital Twin Consortium and CTO at Ansys, added: “In order to build really accurate digital twins, you need to combine the power of physics-simulation based approaches with data-analytics-AI based approaches.
“This is why the AIoT User Group was formed and is a core part of the Digital Twin Consortium’s observations.
“I am delighted to represent this point of view in being a member of both the boards of AIoT User Group and Digital Twin Consortium.”
Digital Twin Consortium and AIoT User Group will exchange information through regular consultations, seminars, and more.
