Mon 2 Oct 2023 08:30 - 10:00 at 204 - Tutorial Session 5

You have heard extensively about digital twins and how they can be applied in a range of domains and for a range of different purposes. Do you need help in understanding how digital twins can be used for decision making requirements of in the context of uncertainty? This introductory tutorial provides you with a detailed understanding of why digital twins are an important technology for exploring the unique phenomena of complex socio-cyber-economic ecosystems. The tutorial presents a critical analysis of the current state of the art and practice of digital twins in decision making and includes a focus on our actor-based language called Enterprise Simulation Language (ESL). This language is an example of an infrastructure for developing these digital twins for complex systems decision making. The tutorial helps you understand how ESL and related technologies can be used effectively by presenting multiple examples of real- world problems. We also touch upon leveraging Generative AI in construction and use of purposive digital twins.
