Read this article on Mark Girolami (Warwick), now  Lloyd’s Register Foundation / Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Data Centric Engineering, who is starting a new project on the monitoring of the first 3D-printed bridge, soon to be installed in Amsterdam, by creating a virtual twin, fed by sensors from the real bridge, in order to check for safety and integrity. I like this notion of data-centric engineering! (Which sounds like the revenge of the statistician, at least in the ancient era of French engineering schools, when statistics was not considered a part of engineering.)
