Digital Twin

The theme of our event will be Digital Twin, a term used to describe a virtual replica of a real world object or phenomenon. Digital twins — avatars, simulation models and artificial intelligence — constitute virtual worlds which can be used to both interpret and shape our reality. How are individuals, societies, cities and natural systems reflected in and impacted by digital worldbuilding? How can they help us better understand ourselves and our reality? On the other hand, how can implicit or explicit bias distort or mislead such efforts, and what are the consequences when we lose control of these digital worlds?


The mission of Data through Design and Open Data Week, a city-wide endeavor by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics, is to encourage a wider knowledge of New York City’s open datasets and how these resources can enable better public understanding of what is happening in NYC’s neighborhoods, schools, streets, and parks.
