AWS at Smart Cities Week 2023

Submitted by laura.valeine@… on March 7, 2023

We hope you were able to join us for #SmartCitiesWeek2023 in Melbourne last month. If not, here is what you missed from our partners at Amazon Web Services (AWS)

As a platinum sponsor, AWS was able to deliver multiple roundtable and deep dive sessions focused on smart cities, digital twins and simulation. As industry experts, they shared their views, experience and advice on fast tracking projects and dealing with challenges encompassing culture, technology and people.

Some interesting questions from the sessions were:
“What are the foundations for successfully implementing a digital twin?”
“What are the top challenges in implementing digital twins?”
“How do we prioritize multiple digital twin use cases?”

Attendees were able to check out the latest AWS demos on AWS IoT TwinMaker digital twins and real-world spatial simulations using AWS SimSpace Weaver at the exhibition booth.

The final day was an exclusive AWS Academy day where councils and place-making specialists shared examples of their AWS smart cities solutions in action.

We look forward to our continued collaboration with AWS through future similar events, and helping members and customers move ahead on the many Digital Twin initiatives designed to improve citizen’s lives!

AWS is also sponsoring the Smart Cities Council ANZ Digital Twin Summit on the 6th July in New Zealand. More details and registration link to follow soon.
