NASEM report on Foundational Research Gaps and Future Directions for Digital Twins

New Report Urges Multiagency Action to Support Potentially Transformative Digital Twins Research

Federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Energy, National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation, should develop new crosscutting programs to advance the mathematical, statistical, and computational foundations underlying digital twin technologies, says a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Digital twins hold immense potential to accelerate scientific discovery, drive improvements in climate sciences, and revolutionize health care, manufacturing, and other sectors, but an integrated agenda is needed to harmonize research across sectors and focus efforts on realistic applications.

The report says research into digital twins could translate into improved decision-making in biomedical settings, enhanced capabilities for making weather forecasts and simulating climate variability and change, and more efficient operations and production strategies. Advances in digital twins could also open up new avenues for scientific and industrial growth and innovation.
