*UKHotViewsExtra* TRIC-DT seeks to harness the power of digital twins

The Alan Turing Institute logoThe Alan Turing Institute has launched a new initiative to help advance the use of digital twin technology. The Turing Research and Innovation Cluster in Digital Twins (TRIC-DT) was launched as part of the national institute’s AI UK conference.

Digital twins are a priority area for the Institute and feature strongly in the organisation’s new strategy. Together with its partners, it has already invested c.£30m in research and innovation across a range of digital twin projects, including developing foundational theory and applications in engineering, environmental and social sciences.

The Institute has played a key role in the development of digital twins and has partnered on a number of notable projects and has been seeking to address the challenges associated with developing ecosystems of digital twins (EDTs).

With the TRIC-DT the Institute is seeking to enhance the creation of digital twin expertise by working closely with development partners to advance the science and innovation of digital twinning; produce open and reproducible computational tools for digital twin development; and help democratise access to digital twin technology. Its research activity will be anchored on three areas of societally important challenges: Environment & Sustainability, Infrastructure, and Health.
