Author | Amaia PorteiroCities are complex labyrinths of activities, habitats, resources and interests, reflected in an urban planning that is becoming increasingly complex as time goes by. There is also more digital data available, which could help us improve decision making. But, how should we manage that enormous amount of information? And how should we bring together the virtual world and the physical world to design the efficient and sustainable cities we need?The answer may lie in digital twins, a concept that has existed for some time now, but which has been given a new lease of life with the development of Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced analytics, by enabling the large-scale application of the concept and which includes applying it to urban planning.Numerous experts taking part in the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019 offered a practical look at some of the extremely interesting initiatives being implemented right now, in real cities.
