Cognitive Digital Twins

There has been a recent explosion of interest in digital twins, namely data driven virtual replicas that can provide insights about a physical system and support decision making. This project endeavours to investigate and develop cognitive digital twins, namely twins the model intelligent systems and that can exhibit a high level of intelligence that can replicate human cognitive processes and execute conscious actions autonomously. The aim is to harness the digital twin with knowledge to enable new modalities for intelligence.
