IT-BUSINESS Podcast: Digital Twins
Digital twins are not just simulations that are used in a design phase. They remain as a digital twin even after construction or commissioning and are used to optimize the real counterpart.
Simulations have been used for many years for the design of devices, vehicles, buildings or manufacturing facilities. Simulation models are also used as a basis for predictions in science, such as climate research. However, digital twins go far beyond conventional simulations. Where the latter often simulate only a partial aspect, digital twins are as accurate as possible with realistic physics, materials, lighting, rendering and behavior, in which AI methods also play a major role. In addition, digital twins continue to accompany their real counterparts and are constantly synchronized with them, for example with real-time data obtained using sensors.
Ludwig von Reiche, Managing Director at Nvidia Germany, explains what exactly is behind the digital twins and what they are used for in the IT BUSINESS podcast. His company builds GPUs and complete servers that are used to create digital twins.
