We call the current stage of evolution a »Digital Shadow«. Everything around us is a sensor and collects data that describes us. Unfortunately, at this point one cannot talk about an encompassing ecosystem, because solely the respective provider decides whether and to what extent we gain access to our data. The data is stored highly fragmented.
The next evolutionary stage will be the »Digital Me«. For the first time, data will be merged into a holistic virtual image of us. This requires an ecosystem that will bear down the existing boundaries between service providers.
Finally, the »Personal Digital Twin« is no longer just a representation of data, but also behavior in order to interact autonomously with an ecosystem. Functions of data processing, in particular AI, make it possible for him to make own decisions.
