Friday 21 Feb 2020: Transforming water network operations using the digital twin
David Fortune - Innovye

The Digital Twin is a virtual model of wastewater, stormwater and water distribution networks. In this talk, I will describe the digital twin and its relationship with modelling. I will take a look at some existing implementations and the lessons we have learned from those. Then will go on to discuss where this is all leading for operations.
I produce software systems for the water industry. My focus right now is on transforming water and wastewater network operations using the Digital Twin. That's what I promote at Innovyze and that is the subject of the PhD I am doing at Exeter University. "Transform" is certainly ambitious. Can we do it?
