Data sharing, AI, and digital twinning

Many industry sectors, but also our society at large, are confronted with challenges; examples include as higher productivity in industry, efficient use of resources in agriculture, improved medical procedures, etc.

In addressing these challenges, technologies that combine data with reasoning are getting more and more important. Data from systems, application and context forms the basis for reasoning to optimize systems, processes, etc. Necessary ingredients for such reasoning include fast, safe and efficient data-sharing, application and integration of AI, and model-based reasoning on basis of Digital Twinning.

This webinar shares advances in applying the combination of these technologies in three different sectors: health, industry and agriculture.

International Digital Enablement Week 2021

Are you working in the high-tech industry, in R&D, in systems engineering or systems architecting? Then you should not miss this event! Over the past decades, the high-tech industry has fully experienced the digitalization of their products and processes. Consequently, innovation in high-tech industry is now largely enabled by digital technologies. Complexity of systems is increasing, and with it the complexity of the system of systems.

Are you interested to know how to deal with your legacy? Would you like to be informed about latest verification and validation strategies? Is systems modeling part of your systems engineering strategy? Is platform-based engineering a concern or a benefit? How to use field data in conjunction with system models and artificial intelligence techniques? These - and many other - questions will be addressed in a one-week event that will feature a varied program with interactive sessions inspired by contributions of industry and research organizations

Every working day from 13-20 April there will be an on-line event from approximately 14h30-17h30 organized by ESI (TNO) and its national and international partners High Tech NL, OFFIS/DLR, SERC and TNO.
