From the Ted Talk by Alyssa-Amor Gibbons: How to design climate-resilient buildings

Unscramble the Blue Letters

We are at a point now where we model an intelligent digital twin of each design in vtruail reality. Think of it as a sort of computerized 3D carbon copy of each micro solution, so that we can stress-test it. We can throw real-world climate scenarios its way. And because we’re in that virtual environment, there's no loss of human life, there's no costly damage to infrastructure, and we can pick a building apart and fgruie out what it actually takes to make a more resilient structure. We can, say, throw a Category 5 hurricane wind silutmioan its way, and if it fails in that safe eoenrvnnmit, we can fix it. We can tweak it, we can irpvmoe it, we can optimize the diegsn, and we can do that iteratively until we get it right.

Original Text

We are at a point now where we model an intelligent digital twin of each design in virtual reality. Think of it as a sort of computerized 3D carbon copy of each micro solution, so that we can stress-test it. We can throw real-world climate scenarios its way. And because we’re in that virtual environment, there's no loss of human life, there's no costly damage to infrastructure, and we can pick a building apart and figure out what it actually takes to make a more resilient structure. We can, say, throw a Category 5 hurricane wind simulation its way, and if it fails in that safe environment, we can fix it. We can tweak it, we can improve it, we can optimize the design, and we can do that iteratively until we get it right.
