2020 Prediction: Dr. Dennis Nagy

“Predictions are very difficult, especially about the future,” – Yogi Berra.
Seriously, when I thought back to early 2010 about predicting what would happen by 2020, I’m sure I didn’t see autonomous vehicles, drones, and Tesla, just to mention a few (and I won’t even venture into political predictions).
My prediction for engineering simulation is that it will continue to play an increasing but also less visible (on the surface) role, as has already started to happen with Digital Twins, where engineering simulation is more and more mentioned as an afterthought , as in “Oh, don’t forget that Engineering Simulation is the underlying engine enabling, but not guaranteeing, useful Digital Twins.”
