Cities around the world are increasingly integrating socio-technical data to transform their urban systems into digital city systems. As the world continues to urbanise, convergent engineering and policy for urban systems are needed to ensure that such transformative developments create sustainable urban systems that benefit the citizens and societies at large.
We’re pleased to have the following industry experts share their insights on digital twin technology, coupled with practical use cases to illustrate how it can be integrated into different contexts.

Digital twins can be used to:
Moreover, they can be applied across various industries such as urban development and disaster resilience. More enterprises and governments (including Singapore) are utilising digital twins over the years.
Digital twin technology has opened doors to a plethora of opportunities, and here are some domain-specific use cases:
In summary, there are many areas in which digital twin technology can play a role in to aid in driving new outcomes.
It is important to start by first picking a priority business need, creating a pilot assessment, and slowly building up your skills in this area.
