Instructor: Mark Linne, MAI, SRA  (COURSE DEVELOPER)

What if you could accomplish more in less time? It may sound crazy, but the idea that appraising is relegated to retrospective analysis may no longer be relevant. Within five years, experts predict that 50% of our interactions will involve artificial intelligence (AI). That’s going to unlock an entirely new workflow for the appraisal profession and a new set of capabilities that will drive the back office to the forefront of business strategy. What is clear is that AI and the technologies associated with it will continue to transform how we interact with information and machines.

Objectives:

  • Understand the components of AI including the internet, big data, machine learning, and the internet of things.
  • Understand the relationship of the interplay between the components of AI.
  • See how real estate appraisal is impacted by technological change that will be further altered by advances in AI.
  • Understand how to change in order to meet the new challenges.
  • Understand blockchain and how it can be used to facilitate real estate transactions.
  • Understand how technologies work in tandem with blockchain to transform the real estate marketplace
  • Recognize the challenges and the potential to gain knowledge that you’ll be able to use to provide more relevant analysis to your clients.
