"The World of NDE 4.0: Let the Journey Begin" published

Digital transformation of the inspection systems is inevitable. Pursuit of this opportunity amidst uncertainty makes a well-defined purpose and robust process essential. This book provides an overview of the purpose of NDE 4.0 (why?), underlying technologies (what?), and ways to overcome the challenges (how?) to successfully pursue the confluence of emerging digital technologies with the evolving physical world of inspection.

Digital Twin: A Fancy 3D Visualization!?!

Looking at publications on the subject of Digital Twins, it seems that a DT is a fancy 3D Visualization - this is quite an unfortunate situation. Digital Twins are THE core of the cyber-physical loops and should be the core of digital transformation projects. In this video, I am presenting my view on digital twins and on the wide variety of digital twins and threads.
