The Impact of COVID-19 on the Implementation of Digital Twins in the Global Building Industry: From Cityzenith

A recent Forbes article predicted that a post-coronavirus future will include more contactless interfaces and
interactions, strengthened digital infrastructure, better monitoring and use of IoT and Big Data, AI-enabled
development, and an increased reliance on robots. Put simply, the trend will be towards virtualization and
digitalization in all industries, and Digital Twin-making will pave the road to virtualization and digitalization in the
building industry. More online meetings, less travel; more shared, flexible workspaces, fewer assigned physical
spaces; more operational data collection via IOT sensors, less manual reporting; more AI-enabled analysis, less
guesswork; more maintenance tasks performed by robots, less manual intervention. Read the article and Tom Shircliff’s comments here: Cityzenith
