Real AI: Florida, Headlines and The Beatles

August 29 2023

Introducing Real AI -- a human-curated weekly roundup of all things AI in real estate and emerging AI innovations in other sectors likely to impact real estate.

AI is Florida's "Rockstar"

wav real ai 20230825 1I just returned from the Florida Realtors annual convention, where the real star of the show was artificial intelligence – apologies to Tim Tebow, the keynote, who was surprisingly quite good.

Agents and brokers packed every session that has AI in the title. When highlighting AI as it relates to public relations in my first presentation ("5 Takeaways to Enhance Your Business with Public Relations"), the crowd actually went, "Wow."

At the Emerging Technologies Committee, Craig Grant, founder of the Real Estate Technology Institute, and I did a one-two take on AI. Craig's talk was "How AI and ChatGPT Are Transforming Real Estate," packed with excellent practical examples of AI touching nearly every part of the real estate ecosystem.

My 20-minute talk was "AI in Real Estate: Where we are now, where we are going," and also touched on some of the social, ethical, regulatory and legal obstacles ahead.

The committee typically has 50-60 people in the room, but it was packed at nearly three times that.

The AI in real-time video from Restb.ai that I shared during the conference continues to get a "wow" reaction every time: it is here.
