Orange Business invites you to their event

Hello Wednesday by Orange Silicon Valley "Digital Twins – A Foundation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution"

About this event

Join us on Wednesday, July 6th from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM (PDT) / 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM (CEST)

At the core of the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, lies the technology to blur boundaries between the physical and digital worlds. As a result, every aspect of the supply chain is a candidate for transformation. Physical data is becoming easier to obtain and digital tools to visualize and contextualize data are evolving. When data collected from the physical world synchronizes with its digital representation, a digital twin is created.

The fourth industrial revolution differs from the first three, where single technologies drove profound transformations in industry and society. Industry 4.0 is instead characterized by multiple technologies connected into systems. The value of physical data harvested from a single component of a system is often negligible. However, the value of this data grows when examined in the context of the system holistically. Industry 4.0-defining systems maximize the value of connectivity and disrupt production and distribution globally. These Industry 4.0 systems rely on the telecom industry for connectivity and the connected systems of the future hinge on telecom’s evolution.

What exactly is a digital twin and why does it matter? How are digital twins currently used in industry and how will this technology be used in the future? These questions and more will be explored in our upcoming Hello Wednesday event. On Wednesday, July 6, Orange Silicon Valley will speak with a panel of digital twin experts from the Digital Twin Consortium, ParkourSC, and Ansys to better understand the fundamental elements of digital twins and how this emerging technology will shape production and distribution in the years to come.

We hope you can join us for this exciting and informative event.
