The transformative potential of digital twins could have a profound influence on how society addresses global sustainability challenges, but more inclusive, reliable and responsive computer simulations are needed to support these efforts, say researchers in a study recently published in 'Nature Sustainability' journal.

"Digital twins can enable the creation of scenario-based 'what-if' simulations to inform planning and operation decisions. However, challenges do exist and close attention must be paid to addressing these barriers, with a focus on inclusive design, accessibility and diversity," said Catherine Richards of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the U.K.'s University of Cambridge.
