Using AI to solve location and mobility problems
In an abstract sense, location industries—industries, such as real estate and retail, with salient location components and interests—are essentially concerned with signal detection. The better that one is at exploiting data to identify hidden patterns and signals, the greater is the payoff, regardless of the domain, whether it be investment management, site selection, underwriting, or asset valuation. A truly revolutionary and effective strategy will therefore involve aggregating massive amounts of heterogeneous traditional and nontraditional signals, leveraging AI and machine-learning algorithms, and adopting a quantitative and scientific approach. We explore how we at PlaceMake.io use AI to solve location and mobility problems.
