[EVENT] Urban Digital Twins in Korea Experiences by Gaia3D – 28/02/24

28 February, 2024, 12:15 – 13:15
Politecnico di Milano – room 2.1.5 and https://politecnicomilano.webex.com/meet/maria.brovelli

Speaker: Mr. Sanghee Shin – CEO of Gaia 3D

A digital twin is a virtual replica of real-world models, processes, and phenomena. Digital twins are mainly used in manufacturing, health care, and urban management. In this talk, the speaker will share his company’s experiences in implementing urban digital twins in Korea. Digital twins are a prominent topic in Korea, with significant investment from the Korean government in the development and implementation of digital twin systems. He will present several real-world examples of digital twins, focusing on the technological aspects. Also, he will discuss the challenges and limitations of digital twins.

The speakers

Naomi Petrushevsky. She received her master’s degree in Geoinformatics engineering in 2020. Her thesis topic was combining optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for urban classification. Currently, she is studying toward a Ph.D. in telecommunication engineering, where she is mainly focused on the design and signal processing of new SAR constellations with small satellites (CubeSats). In addition, she works as an application engineer in Aresys, a spin-off of Politecnico di Milano.

Mousa Sondoqah. Master’s Degree in Geoinformatics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Thesis topic: ‘The application of NAS and AutoML on Temporal Convolution Neural Networks-Deep learning for Privacy Preserving Computation and forecasting as a service’. He has a researcher position at EURAC, Bolzano/Sudtirol, working on: 

– Building machine learning and deep learning workflows to handle datastreams produced by photovoltaic systems

 -Designing Large-Language models tailored specifically for applications within the energy sector.

Alessandro Austoni. My thesis focused on detecting Bark Beetle infestations in Spruce and Pine trees, using Python, Google Earth Engine, and QGIS, contributing to the preservation of our precious ecosystem. During my studies, I was an Intern, Earth Observation Data Analyst in European Space Agency at Frascati. Now I’m working as GeoServices Techincal Assistant in Planetek Italia, Bari. My role is the development of innovative applications and services to support geospatial/remote sensing projects which require the elaboration of remote sensing data by using Earth Observation/GIS software or developing ad-hoc codes.
