The keynote address on Smart Infrastructure and Digital Twin was delivered by Dr. Mohammed Ali Berawi on Day 2 of the CSID 7003白菜网-SCUD International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure and Urban Development last October 14, 2021. 

In his speech, Dr. Berawi highlighted the role of digital technology in transforming cities and fulfilling Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure. 这是由工业4的三管齐下原则指导的.0, Nature 5.0, and Society 5.0. 第四次工业革命(Industry 4.0)必须与环境相结合(自然.0)和用正确的技能重塑社会(社会5.0). 

One way of using digital tech for smart infrastructure is the use of a “digital twin.” A digital twin is the virtualization of a city or infrastructure development. 通过创建一个相同的城市管理操作系统, it allows stakeholders to simulate proposed changes of policy or project development before implementing them. Using smart technology solutions, 计划人员和管理人员可以更好地实施项目.

而传统的项目需要更长的时间来研究, plan, and make changes of, the use of digital technology allows stakeholders to come with timely and more nuanced solutions. 由于大流行的最新进展, for example, 能让世界各地的人进行虚拟合作吗.

With this, Dr. Berawi highlights the aims of value-added infrastructure development: to optimize stakeholder benefits through better communication, collaboration, and coordination. 例如,印尼的基础设施项目, 例如巽他海峡大桥和PRASTI隧道概念.

To conclude, Dr. Berawi argues that the transformation through digital technology will require us to adapt – train more data scientists, upgrade existing skills, 不断地重组大学和产业. While he recognizes the existing digital gap between urban-rural and rich-poor communities, he stresses that the adaption of digital technology can only bring benefits to developing regions by providing efficient and faster solutions.
