About the Event

A propos de l'événement

The pressure to create a better built environment could not be more significant and urgent than today. Global forces such as climate change driving the need for resilient infrastructure, population growth driving the need for affordable housing, environmental impact driving the need for net zero waste targets and thinning margins and global competition driving the need for productivity and innovation.

The Ottawa Executive Speaker Series will offer innovative and informative sessions about the increasingly important subject of Digital Twins. Initiatives across the globe are emerging to define and develop digital twins to help improve productivity and create efficiencies within the built environment. The CanBIM Ottawa session will explore the unique challenges and opportunities for digital twins in the context of the Canadian building and infrastructure industry. The session will examine diverse scales of digital twins – from asset fabrication to creating a digital twin for buildings, to examining how to develop a digital twin at the national scale and how simulations and monitoring with IoT and artificial intelligence can be utilized to improve our built environment.
