What in the World is a Digital Twin?

Join Rob Tiffany, Hitachi Vantara's CTO for the Lumada IoT Platform, as he shares that a Digital Twin is a digital representation of a physical object -- at Hitachi we call these Asset Avatars.  Asset Avatars are comprised of two components, an Avatar Type which defines the attributes and behaviors of a physical object and the other is the Avatar itself which collects and acts on sensor data.  You can think of the Avatar Type as the asset's DNA and the Avatar itself as the brain.
