About keynote speech:
Digital Twin Ocean Construction for the Greater Bay Area

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) is at the forefront of China's economic growth. For regional disaster prevention, environment protection and sustainable development, it is of great importance to build a Digital Twin Ocean (DTO) system for the GBA. Collaborating with a variety of stakeholders, we are constructing a data lake for full lifecycle marine data governance, to develop data-knowledge coupled marine environment forecasting techniques, to realize online computation and multi-dimensional visualization, and to set up a decision-making service platform for ecosystem-based management. By integrating data and models from different sources into an accessible and interactive framework, this DTO will serve as a powerful tool for marine monitoring, forecasting as well as management for the GBA.
