    Digital Twins, Part 3: Cross-Platform Interoperation at the Data Level

    There is virtually no limit to what could be done when the data are combined using the right strategies, analytics methods and tools. The results could be both – the desired benefits or undesired consequences adversely affecting privacy, safety, fairness, and overall decisions. In our recent research on designing Digital Twins for IoT lifecycle data […]
