Digital Twin Technology Webinar
Join a panel of experts as they unpack the potential of Digital Twin technology and how it offers South Africa with an opportunity to address spatial challenges across municipalities in the country
Join our 𝐃𝐢𝐠𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐓𝐰𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲 𝐖𝐞𝐛𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐫 hosted by Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct in partnership with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands South Africa.
The webinar will unpack how, with the right technology investments, the way cities operate could be completely transformed and how this transformation can allow decision-makers (by using live data) identify where maintenance is needed.
The aim of the Digital Twin hackathon is to stretch the minds of South African and Dutch university students from different academic disciplines to solve relevant city problems. Participants will be able to experiment with emerging technologies and improve their problem-solving abilities. The outcomes of the hackathon will potentially benefit the City of Johannesburg and improve the daily lives of those people residing, working, or simply navigating through this city.
