Institute for


AI and Digital Twins in the lab of the future

The usage of AI and the diffident realization of potential use cases for digital twins are just a few factors urging the digital transformation of the lab. We showcase how to reduce effort, risk, and costs, and simplify the digital journey from manual operations to connected operations.
