Leeds tech start-up is founding member of Responsible Computing organisation

Slingshot Simulations, a Leeds-based tech pioneer of Digital Twin Technology, is one of the first organisations to join the Responsible Computing initiative – a consortium designed to innovate technology for sustainable development in infrastructure, code, and social impact.

Dell Technologies and the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) were the first primary members of Responsible Computing, alongside Slingshot Simulations.

Responsible Computing aims to restore trust in IT by responsibly applying technology to drive positive impact for society and the planet.

Members of Responsible Computing solve technical problems to transform IT teams for sustainable impact, alongside market solutions to positively impact business profitability.

As ‘Ground-breaker Members Since Day One’, Slingshot Simulations are hosting a free, open event on September 29th in Leeds to showcase the importance of Responsible Computing.

Slingshot will bring together the founding members of Responsible Computing, alongside global tech experts from the Digital Twin Consortium in September’s networking event.

Further ‘Ground-breaker Day One Members’ include: Transforma Insights, Purdue University College of Engineering, BCS The Chartered Institute for IT and The University of Edinburgh.

“It is an honour to be a ground breaker member of such an important initiative as Responsible Computing. This is a topic that Slingshot Simulations is passionate to support and a core part of our mission to apply the power of data science, analytics, machine learning, simulation and digital twins to some of the biggest challenges we face today, such as sustainability. I encourage anyone with an interest in the topic to join us in Leeds on September 29th or contact us directly to learn more.”

Slingshot Simulations was founded in 2019 with a mission to deliver actionable insights from cutting edge data science that positively impact the biggest challenges we face today: Climate change; sustainability; resource management, public health and more. We are a thought leader and industry pioneer, participating in global and national organizations such as the Digital Twin Consortium and Centre for Digital Built Britain. Built on a foundation of more than a decade of research and a century of combined data science expertise we do this using our Software-as-a-Service digital twin platform that enables our customers to rapidly integrate and visualize vast data sets in a spatial context, analyse these data holistically and simulate scenarios to predict outcomes. This enables better, more informed decision making, higher levels of stakeholder engagement and improved outcomes for all. With unique IP, being intuitive and easy to use with high levels of automation combined with a low cost of entry, our “no-code” approach breaks down the barriers to adoption and helps companies accelerate their digital transformation and deliver transformative growth.
