Thanks to all the speakers for their enthusiasm and the informative presentations.

For all those who could not participate, we are happy to provide the presentations:

TwinSim – service values based on Eurogate’s Digital Twin project

Eurogate, together with the University of Hamburg and AKQUINET, will build a digital twin from scratch. Raw data from devices and TOS will be sent to the “data lake” and pre-processed for further analysis and KPI presentation. From this, service values are generated using AI-based optimisation and simulation-based analytics. Our speaker Paul Kokot talked about this and more.
