‘Digital twins’ manage the airport and hospitals. Are people next?

San Francisco is living a double life, where taxpayer dollars are saved, disasters are averted, massive structures are built and lives are saved. “Digital twins” are highly detailed three-dimensional models run by computer programs that are being used to help run hospital buildings and parts of the airport, and to replicate the human heart, putting San Francisco at the forefront of the technology, experts say. All the data available about a real-world building or vehicle is entered into a computer program that replicates the original in three dimensions on a screen. https://www.sfexaminer.com/fixes/digital-twins-manage-the-airport-and-hospitals-are-people-next/

NEW TECH: How a ‘bio digital twin’ that helps stop fatal heart attacks could revolutionize medicine

Without much fanfare, digital twins have established themselves as key cogs of modern technology. A digital twin is a virtual duplicate of a physical entity or a process — created by extrapolating data collected from live settings. Digital twins enable simulations to be run without risking harm to the physical entity; they help inform efficiency gains made in factories and assure the reliability of jet engines, for instance. https://www.lastwatchdog.com/new-tech-how-a-bio-digital-twin-that-helps-stop-fatal-heart-attacks-could-revolutionize-medicine/

NTT Research PHI Lab Adds To Its Scientific Staff

Multi-Party Computation: Private Inputs, Public Outputs

Cryptography is about more than figuring out how to lock down data and deliver channels in the clear with the right key. It’s also about increasing functionality. In an earlier column, we discussed alternatives to the traditional all-or-nothing (locked or unlocked) approach, including attribute-based and functional encryption. Another approach that merits attention is secure multi-party computation: https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestechcouncil/2021/10/26/multi-party-computation-private-inputs-public-outputs/?utm_campaign=Social%20Member%20Articles&utm_content=184927516&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&hss_channel=tw-3291010518&sh=21fb0d9d1bb0
