The National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore and GeoWorks co-organised a virtual webinar on “Reimagining the Future of Smart Cities with High Performance Computing” on 9th June.
During the session, speakers from NSCC (a GeoWorks GeoPartner), the Institute of High Performance Computing, the Centre for Liveable Cities and the Urban Redevelopment Authority shared insights on Digital Twin and its application in city planning, approaches to route optimisation modelling and network analysis, and HPC computing applications and use cases.
In his welcome remarks, Mr Lim Liyang, Deputy Director of the Geospatial and Data division at the Singapore Land Authority said the topic of the webinar was relevant to the issues faced in cities today. “Rapid urbanisation and digitalisation are mega trends impacting all of us changing the way we manage cities and perhaps really giving us less margins of error in how we plan and operate,” he said.
