Abstract: In this seminar, we will introduce the digital twins, as well as frameworks, methodologies and methods for converging multimedia technologies (AR/VR, AI, IoT, Big Data, Cybersecurity and 5G) towards the digital twin for health care. A digital twin is a digital replication of a living or non-living physical entity. By bridging the physical and the virtual worlds, data is transmitted seamlessly allowing the virtual entity to exist simultaneously with the physical entity. A digital twin facilitates the means to monitor, understand, and optimize the functions of the physical entity and provides continuous feedback to improve quality of life and wellbeing of citizens in smart cities. We address diverse challenges and the open research questions.
