Navigating the Digital Twin Revolution

with Michael Grieves

Navigating the Digital Twin Revolution

with Michael Grieves

Renowned science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Dr. Michael Grieves relays this quote roughly halfway through this dynamic episode, and it turned out to be a striking complement to his passion for new ideas.

Currently the Executive Director at the Digital Twin Institute, new ideas are practically in Dr. Grieves’ DNA. In addition to holding both an MBA and doctorate, he pioneered the digital twin, making him the definitive source for all related discussions.

Dr. Grieves’ appearance on this episode is nothing short of a gift. He details efforts with NASA & General Motors, computing in the 1960s, disagreements with Alan Turing, CEO & CFO experience, cybersecurity, AI & our future, and much more. This conversation is a gem for anyone remotely near the space.
