dTwins: Decentralized computational statistics for science and decision-making at global scale
2023-10-06, 16:55–17:00, Poster presentation

Addressing our most pressing civilizational challenges requires effective systems for building, evaluating and evolving scientific models. dTwins is an open, decentralized platform for computational statistics that redefines how scientists and decision-makers create models, fit models to data, perform inference and prediction, generalize to other contexts, and apply models to real-world decisions. In this talk, we present the dTwins architecture, highlighting some of its key innovations, and the initial implementation developed for the agricultural domain at Digital Gaia, in partnership with the Buckminster Fuller Institute.
