The Digital Twin Ocean City

About the event
Tel Aviv - Is it a Digital Twin Ocean City?About this event
We are a side event to the UN Ocean Decade Lab Event on 15-17 September, 2017. The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science is a 10 year mission to engage business, government, and civil-society leaders around the world to protect the ocean and acheive the Sustainable Development Goals - globally, regionally and locally. The Ocean Decade Laboratories are a series of events designed to explore ocean innovation and thought leadership.
The Ocean Data Alliance is working with The United Nations, and many stakeholders from business, government, science, IT, journalism, and art to create a Digital Twin Ocean that illuminates what’s going on above, on, and below the surface of the ocean, in the chemistry, biology, and physics of the water and the marine life that lives in it – for all the world to see on any platform and device.
Data, captured with analog and digital sensors, in situ and in the past, combined with geospatial information, video, audio, and reports is the currency of a Digital Twin Ocean. How it is collected, aggregated,communicated, and shared across entities, nations, and organizations are massive Data Governance challenges.
In this event, The City of Tel Aviv will present a use case example of how they are collecting ocean data and reporting conditions, while a team of experts will evaluate if it is an early prototype of a Digital Twin Ocean City.
A Digital Twin is a working computational copy of a real thing. When the real thing moves, the digital twin moves at the same time. When the waves of ocean roll onto shore, the Digital Twin moves at the same speed. We want to explore how a coastal city is collecting data about how humans impact the ocean and how the ocean impacts urban life, and see this session as a contribution to the recently established Ocean Decade Programme DITTO.
