Digital Twins have been gaining significant traction among various industries. This lightning talk will unravel the difference and commonality between two client types of digital twin (DT) applications: Thick Clients and Thin Clients. A thick client application refers to software application that is installed and runs on a computer or specialised terminal of good hardware and high computing performance. On the other hand, a thin client application is a lightweight application that would fit well to devices of lesser computing & hardware requirements. We will explore their characteristics, applications and synergy for different industries use cases.

Modelling and Simulation (M&S) is a game-changing capability that will revolutionize planning, operations and management of the cities. By enabling the simulation and experimentation of countless scenarios in a Smart City context, M&S can accelerate innovation and development of planning and operational systems. What SCTD aims to do is to bring simulation management and infrastructure as a service through the cloud, providing interoperable tools and capabilities, and allowing seamless integration to agency’s enterprise systems through APIs and microservices. This talk presents the framework and principles that we have developed to support this effort.

As the senior population continues to grow, so does the demand for caregivers. The Sensei Care Kit addresses this need by aiming to boost caregiver productivity in monitoring the health of seniors. The kit enables collection of health data, including blood pressure and weight.

This data empowers caregivers to remotely monitor seniors' health, facilitating early identification of those requiring increased attention. With the emphasis on encouraging self-monitoring. The immediate data feedback allows for more frequent health assessments, empowering seniors to make informed decisions about their well-being.

The talk will delve into the technology and the improvements made.
