Discover the organizers and artists who are participating in this year's Data though Design art show — “Digital twin” is a term used to describe a virtual replica of real world phenomena. Digital twin technology is used to model possible scenario outcomes, or to serve as a proxy for “ground truth” in situations where real ground truth is unavailable. The seductive promise of gleaning seemingly unlimited knowledge based on “realistic-but-fake” datasets has led to the adoption of digital twin technology in contexts ranging from transportation engineering to medical research.
