‘Cross-cutting programmes needed on digital twins’

US national academies report calls for interdisciplinary investment in development of simulation technologies

Federal agencies in the United States should develop new cross-cutting programmes to advance the mathematical, statistical and computational foundations underlying ‘digital twin’ technologies, according to a report.

Published on 15 December, the report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine says that digital twins—virtual models or simulations of a physical system, such as weather—hold “immense potential” to accelerate scientific discovery. But it adds that investment in the interdisciplinary foundations of the technologies is needed.
