When talking about ‘Digital Twin’ technology, what comes to your mind first? Dassault Systemes’ 3D solutions for real life objects? In-Silico models in pharmaceutical industries? The Virtual Liver Project in the healthcare industry? The concept of digital twins has been around for more than two decades, helping businesses virtually test how objects will behave in the real world. It is a 3D software model of a physical entity or an asset that is fed constantly with data from multiple sensors – initiated from the time of birth and updated regularly till its termination. What is interesting is that it is fast becoming a force to reckon with in the life sciences industry today. Digital human organs are being increasingly prototyped and are likely to become the norm in the near future.
