2020 Prediction: Dr. Ricardo Actis

Ricardo ActisDemocratization of numerical simulation through the development and dissemination of expert-designed Smart Engineering Simulation Apps (Sim Apps) gained momentum during the second decade of this century. In the next decade it will be decided whether Sim Apps are here to stay. That will depend on whether the practice of Simulation Governance will be adopted to guide the creation of Sim Apps in order to ensure that their level of reliability meets high professional standards. That is the most important prerequisite for their widespread adoption.
