Digital Twins for Cities

Welcome to the "Data Dialogues" - an online engagement series as part of Smart Cities Week Australia New Zealand 2020 and hosted by the Centre for Data Leadership.


This dialogue will unpack the opportunity of embracing the Digital Twin as a tool for activating data in local government.


As a powerful data platform the Digital Twin can help in planning, designing, constructing and operating our built environment assets, while also helping enhance city services. With its ability to ingest social, economic and natural environment data, in real time, one can see its potential value in delivering better outcomes for less.


Join our dialogue guests - from public, private and third sector - as we interrogate opportunities for Digital Twins in our cities.
