Policy Making Outputs
DUET is developed by cities for cities. DUET’s digital twins promote data-driven decision making by building a comprehensive, virtual representation of a city's processes. With the right data points, DUET digital twins provide a business-level view that can be used to measure, analyse and predict operational impact across an entire city or region. This end-to-end, real-time, visibility enables cities to understand what is happening across its multi-disciplinary domains and services. With this knowledge, cities can react quickly to events and simulate alternative policy and operational approaches based on real data, as opposed to making assumptions based on generalized expectations.
Results from DUET that are useful for policy making can be found below.
High level guide that outlines the different starting points for local digital twins, showing that you do not need to start with AI, provides pathway for moving to more advanced twins.
This official project deliverable sheds light on the legal landscape that underpins Digital Twin activities and provides a framework for compliance with EU and, where applicable for DUET, national legislation.
This simple animated video outlines what a Digital Twin is for those who are new to the subject. It shares the benefits of their adoption and what each pilot city in DUET will be using theirs for.
DUETs sister project called PoliVisu (Policy Visualisations) developed an online course on how to use city data for policy making. The course is still in date and available. DUET will build on the results and offer a follow-on course in 2022.
DUETs vision/mission statement was created by city, research and technology partners. All new projects should have a vision for their Digital Twins which will help guide progress to achieve needed benefits
This official DUET deliverable seeks to (i) discuss the building blocks of the ethical discourse around data-based decision making, and (ii) suggest an ethical code of conduct (ethical principles) for cities in such a context.
