AI, avatars and digital twins are becoming common terms but what do they actually mean and how can we use the new technology associated with them to improve the quality of life. A team from the Institute of Digital Engineering & Autonomous Systems will bring them into the real-world.

What is AI?

Dr Yang Zhang (Lead Data Scientist)
We will explore the essence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), breaking down its complexities into understandable segments. We'll begin with a brief history of AI, tracing its evolution from theoretical underpinnings to today's advanced applications. The presentation will clarify what AI is, differentiating between AI, machine learning, and deep learning, and explaining the technologies that enable machines to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence.

Undressing Digital Twins: Uncovering Reality in the Virtual World

Prof Eann Paterson (Dean of the School of Engineering)
What is a digital twin? What are not digital twins? These questions and how digital twins are supporting engineers develop, build and manage complex systems will be discussed. The potential future of digital twins powered by quantum computing and integrated in metaverses will be speculated upon along with probability that we might all be in a simulation already!

Virtual Avatars

Radoslaw Dorociak (Intern at the Virtual Engineering Centre)
In our presentation on 'Virtual Avatars,' we delve into the digital personas that represent us in the online world. We'll define what virtual avatars are; AI-powered entities that can mimic human behaviours and emotions. We'll explore the technologies behind avatar creation, including 3D modelling, motion capture, and AI, to understand how these digital avatars are crafted.
