Based in Canada, Dogu Taskiran has previously worked for Microsoft, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.
In a podcast with smart lighting and building software company amBX SmartCore, Dogu shares his thoughts on digital twins, how they work, the benefits and how they can make a building or even a city smart.
