Introduction

Digital twins are increasingly being deployed across several domains and this emerging technology has huge potential for impact across industry and society and in varied ways. However, foundational challenges remain, and it is an area of huge potential and scope for academic research and industry-academia collaboration.  

This workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear about the work of the Turing in the digital twins space and to gain expert insight into the industry perspective from Accenture. 

Through this workshop we aim to build connections between and amongst the finance and economics programme, and the Turing digital twins community. 

The workshop is intended to be a precursor to an open call where funding from the Accenture partnership will be awarded to projects working in this space. The workshop will enable us to identify areas of particular interest, as well as providing interested applicants the opportunity to engage with the programme, the Turing and Accenture before choosing to apply. 

About the event

There will be presentations from Turing SMEs working across four key areas of research at the Institute: 

  • Data-centric engineering  
  • Agent based models  
  • Urban analytics  
  • Multi-agent systems 

Presentations will be followed by a live audience Q&A. Accenture will also be sharing examples of industry case studies, exploring how digital twins are currently used to solve problems and innovate. 

We hope to form new connections with the Turing network and enable engagement amongst the community. 

About the Accenture Turing Strategic Partnership  

In 2020 we launched a five-year Strategic Partnership with Accenture. Find out more here.
