Digital Tech Summit 2022

Digital Tech Summit er mødested for innovative start-ups, teknologiførende virksomheder og stærke forskningsmiljøer – en hybrid mellem konference, messe og networking event, midt i København. I år er vi gået sammen med København Universitet om at arrangere tre sessioner: ’What is the future of Co-bots’, ’Digital Twins for Digital Design and Quality Assesment in Production’ og ‘What happens when the Metaverse meets real life?’

Deltagelse er gratis for digitale startups. Til Vision Denmarks andre klyngemedlemmer giver vi 30% rabat ved brug af koden DTS2022. Vi håber meget på at se jer.

What is the future of Co-bots

What is the potential of co-bots in business and research? What are the opportunities and how can we collaborate to create new businesses? And what are the challenges?
This session will try to give answers to these questions while also showcasing some of the current research with cobots.

Digital Twins for Digital Design and Quality Assesment in Production

A digital twin means a computer model that use simulation to predict or test real-world outcomes. A digital twin means a computer model that use simulation to predict or test real-world outcomes. This session adresses two important challenges posed by digital twins. The first challenges is models of humans for computerized clinical trials and digital design of health care products and medical devices. The crux is to deal with the challenge of variability of humans. The second challenge is how to use computer graphics to assess quality in production through digital models of geometry and surface material properties to create a baseline for how assembly line products should appear. This gives fast approaches for testing. This session will showcase recent trends and development of digital twinning. The session is highly relevant for companies or academics who wish to level up their development and production pipelines to use smarter digital tools to save time and resources on design development, testing and quality assurance.

Introduction: Kenny Erleben, Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.

Scientific Talk: “What is this supposed to look like?”, Jeppe Revall Frisvad, Associate Professor, DTU Compute, Technical University of Denmark.

Panel discussion 20 minutes of afterthoughts: Discussion of the future of computerized deisgn, testing and quality assurance. Open questions from audience.


What happens when the Metaverse meets real life?

In recent years, Virtual Reality (VR) has really showed its potential. Starting out as a fascinating feature in the entertainment industry, the possibilities of exploiting VR for training and educational purposes have now extended into real life applications. What works well? And where should we still investigate potentials for improvement?

VR has the potential to transfer a human being from one location or scenario to another without having to change the actual physical environment – even in situations that do not exist in real time. This technology allows for numerous ways of collaborating, testing, and experimenting in the Metaverse, in time and space, also across borders.

In this session we will demonstrate how Virtual Reality (VR) and also Augmented Reality (VR) are gaining increasing importance in the industry, e.g for training, nudging and empowering people in a safe environment. You will be updated on trends, and experience real life examples of how VR/AR could be of benefit to your society or your business.
