A.I., Machine Learning, and the Built Environment Fundamentals & Proptech Applications

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its Machine Learning (ML) applications power some of the world’s biggest companies. A key part of Real Estate Technology (Proptech), they power the features of some of the most invested-in, and fastest-growing companies in real estate. However, they have yet to change the day-to-day work of most real estate firms and professionals and remain an untapped opportunity to those able to adapt them to their biggest real estate problems. This program will constitute a non-technical introduction to AI and Machine Learning, with particular emphasis on their current applications in the fields of Real Estate, Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism. The main focus of the program will be to give you a high-level overview of what AI & ML are, and what types of problems they are particularly suited to solve. We will present the foundational topic of data, including types, acquisition, parsing and their relation to the training of neural networks, as well as more advanced themes such as biases and ethics.  This three-day program will be preceded by short readings, and consist of lectures, hands-on conceptual exercises and group discussions focused on current practical applications of AI & ML in the built environment. Past iterations have looked at the applications of machine learning on property valuation, floorplan generation, recommendation engines, and listing process automation, as used by the world's most prominent proptech companies, such as Airbnb, Zillow, and Redfin. Given the rate of iteration of AI & ML, each session looks at the most up-to-date examples shaping the industry - from algorithm-powered revenue management systems to "iBuying" applications.

#artificialintelligence

There are many ways that artificial intelligence (AI) could potentially help a real estate agent or REALTOR. Lead generation: AI can help agents identify potential leads and customers by analyzing data on their preferences and behaviors. Market analysis: AI can help agents analyze market trends and predict changes, which can be useful for setting prices and making informed decisions about buying or selling property. Customer service: AI can assist agents by answering common questions from clients and providing information on listings, helping to free up the agent's time for more high-level tasks. Property evaluation: AI can help agents by providing estimates of a property's value, using data on comparable properties and market trends.

On the importance of eliminating bias in AI-based recruitment

#artificialintelligence

The commercialisation of artificial intelligence (AI) is taking a similar route, which is unsurprising. But, given AI's innate ability to adapt and learn at an exponential rate, it may not be a bad thing. What needs to be done to ensure the use of AI in hiring is unbiased and equitable? To avoid legal wrangling, the data being used to train AI must be sufficiently representative of all groups. This is especially crucial in hiring because many professional work settings – particularly in industries like computing, finance and media – are dominated by white and/or male employees.


The $500mm+ Debacle at Zillow Offers – What Went Wrong with the AI Models? - insideBIGDATA

#artificialintelligence

Zillow, an online real estate marketplace, recently shuttered its Zillow Offers business because of failed iBuying algorithms. A derailed algorithm on property valuations led the company to reduce the estimated value of the houses it purchased in Q3 and Q4 by more than $500 million. Zillow has already officially announced $304 million in Q3 losses and expects to reduce its workforce by 25% over future quarters in order to compensate for the impact on its business. An analyst has estimated that possibly 2/3rds of the homes that Zillow purchased are currently valued at below what Zillow paid for them. The event has once again raised concerns about the validity of AI models.
