Building cities of the future with digital twins on The Pulse

May 6, 2021
This month on The Pulse, we talk about the fast-growing world of digital twins and their impact on architecture, engineering, and construction, and on the people who will inhabit these cities of the future.

Digital Twins: Building Cities of the Future is hosted by Fred Mills of The B1M, the world’s largest and most subscribed-to YouTube video channel for construction. Fred is joined by Salla Eckhardt of Microsoft, Tim Johnson of Buildmedia, and David Weir-McCall of Epic Games.
On this episode of The Pulse, the panel talks about the current state of digital twins technology, and how it stands to improve the way cities are planned, designed, and built. They’ll also talk about misconceptions about digital twins, and explain what they really are.

Digital twins open up opportunities for all stakeholders—from civic planners to city residents—to get involved in evaluating existing structures, and to give input for streamlining, strengthening, and expanding infrastructure. 

The panel discusses how the types of insights gained from digital twins can be used to improve the usability of buildings, roads, and cities, with the ultimate goal of a better quality of life for everyone who lives there.
