A key enabler of digitalization is virtual models of processes, products or services. By pairing the virtual and physical worlds we allow for analysis of data and monitoring of systems to take care of problems before they even occur.  New opportunities are awaiting around the corner. This seminar presents opportunities in production with support from digital solutions from process to system.</p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/about-chalmers/calendar/Pages/Chalmers-Sustainability-Day2018.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/about-chalmers/calendar/Pages/Chalmers-Sustainability-Day2018.aspxChalmers Sustainability Day 2018<p>TBA</p><p>​Chalmers Sustainability Day is back - Tuesday 23 October 2018.

Two excellent speakers will present during the conference lunches, Dr. Peter Frazier, Associate Professor at Cornell University and Staff Data Scientist and Data Science Manager at Uber, and Dr. Russell Cheng, Emeritus Professor at the University of Southampton. </div>
