This year Gartner, in their annual Top 10 Strategic Technologies Trends list, put Digital Twins at the number 4 spot, just behind all Autonomous Things, Augmented Analytics and AI-Driven Development. This is a pretty meteoric rise for Digital Twins which didn’t make the 2016 list at all, jumped in at number 5 in 2017 list, moved to number 4 in 2018 and has held its position in 2019.

It’s true, Palmy rocks! This was confirmed at the 2WALKandCYCLE conference, held from 30 July - 1 August 2018 in Palmerston North. I had heard earlier in the year at the Urbanism NZ Conference that there was a big push to revive the heart of the city through events and funky urban initiatives such as parklets and street art. I wasn’t disappointed, as the Palmerston North City Council (PNCC) had laid it on with some tactical urbanism right in front of the conference centre. Overnight they had painted the drop off area and adjacent intersection, and chucked some bean bags around on the entrance forecourt – boom!
