Articles and content that will help in going Beyond Buildings:

  • Getting started with digital twins. Every digital twin needs a 3D model, sometimes called a replica in digital twin parlance. If you’re already doing architectural visualization, then you already have a 3D model of the real-world structure in question一or you have the means to create or obtain one一so this is an area you can get moving on right away.

  • BIM, Revit, and the Database Dream. As buildings became more complex, different aspects of the building would be drawn by different disciplines - one set of drawings would show the mechanical systems, one would show the structural systems, and so on. To coordinate between the different disciplines (and increasingly complex architectural drawings), drawings would be created using a layered approach. Each drawing sheet would show one aspect of the building, and these could be layered on top of each other, either by printing them on clear Mylar sheets, or using something like a light table, making it possible to pick and choose which aspects of the building you wanted to see.

  • Power your world - Siemens Energy introduces the new browser game Power MatrixPower Matrix explains the correlations and processes of the individual variables involved in energy economics with the help of simulation and strategy games that have universal appeal, i.e. not only on the gaming scene. The online game is based on an idealized and simplified view of reality and was developed in collaboration with experts from the fields of gaming, corporate strategy, and engineering. The game provides general descriptions of technologies and technical possibilities for products and solutions in the field of energy economics.

  • Here’s What You Need to Know About Propensity Modeling. With enough data, you can develop highly accurate propensity scores. Armed with those scores, it’s possible to not only understand the probability that an individual customer will transact, but also estimate what you expect the value of that customer to be.

  • CNN Makes Moments From History Available For Purchase With NFTs. Since the dawn of television, people have experienced history through video, connecting with journalism on a personal basis. Until now, there has been no way to “collect” these moments. Users can often find old footage online, or packaged up in documentaries, but they cannot “own” them or display them in the way they can with a print newspaper or magazine.
