About the event

The tools, practices & systems monthly seminar brings together researchers, data scientists and software engineers across the Turing and beyond to connect and discover the latest in open research and infrastructure from a mix of internal and external speakers.

Seminars take place on the last Wednesday of every month (except August & December 2021).

Agenda

Wednesday 27 October 2021 | 12:30 - 14:00

Real-time data assimilation for Digital Twins - UCL 

Hear from TPS project: Real-time Advanced Data assimilation for Digital Simulation of Numerical Twins on HPC 

Digital Twins of physical and human systems informed by real-time data, are becoming ubiquitous across weather forecasting, disaster preparedness, and urban planning, but researchers lack the tools to run these models efficiently, limiting progress. This project is adapting methods originally developed in weather forecasting to cope with the timescales, data streams, and complex nature of modelling in different scenarios to enable Digital Twinning to become a reality across a wide range of fields. These tools could change how we model evacuation for tsunamis, traffic flow in smart cities, or protect communities against flash flooding, and more.
