IoT Thrust Seminar | Construction, Deployment, and Application of Human Digital Twin for Human-Centric Services

2:00pm - 3:00pm
Offline venue: W4 - 202, Zoom: 919 6490 5882 Passcode: iott

The upcoming 6G witnesses a pivotal transformation - shifting the spotlight from service providers to service recipients and emphasizing human-centric service with a focus on quality of experience (QoE). Delivering such human-centric services necessitates a profound understanding of human needs and a new approach to integrating humans into the service provisioning loop. Drawing inspiration from the recent advancements in digital twin technology within Industry 4.0, this presentation introduces a novel concept called Human Digital Twin (HDT), which constructs digital profiles for individual human being, fostering personalized research and services. We will delineate the conceptual framework, network architecture, and key technologies underpinning HDT, with a spotlight on its application in personalized healthcare. Through three compelling case studies, we explore three pillars in HDT research: construction, deployment, and application, unveiling its transformative potential. Finally, we chart future research trajectories, envisioning a horizon where HDT reshapes the fabric of human-centric services in the 6G era and beyond.
