Scan The World
We live in a physical world but everything seems to be going digital.
People use tech and web without limitations but tend to forget physical things around them, many of which are sustaining our existence.
I&T is getting deeper into our lives and we must find ways to get the most of it. And why don’t mix the digital world with the physical worlds?
There's much development, like augmented reality and virtual reality, to place our real world into the digital. It looks like top technology but gaming has already been placing us, or our avatars, in totally digital worlds for over 15 years. And if they put our world in the game and people interact with each other within the game? And if the real/digital world has an extremely precise accuracy?
Now we have equipment that can scan things around us in 3D, with higher accuracy than the millimeter. We use that to put objects inside computer models. To work on them, print them and see them in the virtual world.
Can you imagine if instead of objects we put a Factory? And if it’s not a factory but the entire city? The 3D scan is a reality and has the potential to transform our real world into digital with very much accuracy.
Having all the physical world in an AI database is a very powerful resource. Imagine if you want to know the distance that you need to consider between toxic waste reservoirs. The AI can give you the average in different types of industries or according to the plant size. And if you want to know the height of a pipe rack with 20 meters. It can give you the average according to different pipes densities or sizes and the structural sections dimensions.
Behind these examples is the principle of, if someone has already analyzed and studied something similar, why not start from this base and save resources. In the future, it will be possible for all the physical things placed within the digital world.
The future will bring a virtual world where we can suggest designs for machines, plant layouts or even cities developments, but we will only suggest because there will be smart software with built-in AI that can give powerful and important designs according to an all-digital world that it can access.
