Digital Twins for Digital Engineering

Julien Schmaltz
ICT Group


Digital Twins together with Machine Learning and Edge Computing will deeply change the way we will build flexible manufacturing systems, such as lithography machines or electron microscopes. Within the ICT Group Centre of Excellence and together with universities, clients and partners, we are developing methods and tools to support and accelerate this revolution. Our vision is that we would learn complex control software using a digital twin and safely deploy the learned algorithm on the edge.  We would like to share our experiences and the many challenges that need to be addressed before this vision can be realised.
