RESO Spring Tech Summit Examines Data Standards Impact, Innovation Winners

March 07 2018

Meeting Also Set to Discuss Next Generation of Standards to Streamline Industry

RALEIGH, N.C., March 7, 2018 -- The Real Estate Standards Organization, or RESO, heads to Denver for its 2018 Spring Tech Summit from April 24-26 at the pop-themed The Curtis hotel. More than 250 real estate technology leaders from real estate brokerages, Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) and technology firms will meet to discuss the impact of data standards on the real estate industry, and the next generation of data standards that will continue to streamline real estate transactions.

"This year's RESO Tech Summit is packed with Case Studies presented by companies who have demonstrated that RESO data standards are helping improve our industry and the bottom line for real estate brokerages and software developers in precise, measurable dollars," said Jeremy Crawford, CEO of RESO. RESO is an independent non-profit with more than 750 active members, including NAR, multiple-listing services, real estate associations, brokerages and industry technology providers.

Case Studies will cover:

  • The implementation of RESO's Organizational Unique ID (OUID) with representatives discussing the benefits to Homes.com, ShowingTime, and T3.
  • How TRIBUS migrated to the RESO Data Dictionary, which reinvigorated its IDX platform and underlying product.
  • A look at the real-world implementation of RESO's Universal Property Identification (UPI) by Austin Brokerage Jovio.
  • A discussion on the real-world implementation of RESO Data Dictionary standards through different paths, including leaders of California Regional MLS (CRMLS) and New England Real Estate Network (NEREN).

Highlights also will include presentations by the winners of RESO's Innovation Competition. These innovators will showcase their breakthrough ideas they built on top of a standardized RESO data set that was provided to them by Austin Board of REALTORS®, CoreLogic, and RESO.

Among the hot topics that will be covered include "The Dark Side of AI, Machine Learning, and Neural Networks" by industry consultant Eric Byrn, and, "From to Meandered to Standard – Adventures in Gradual RETS Adoption," by L.D. Salmanson, CEO, Cherre, Inc., reviewing how many in the industry who are still entrenched in legacy schemas and frameworks, can get where they need to be. Targeted to software developers, a session also will reveal both the RESO Web API Open Source PHP Reference Client and W&R Studios Web API Ruby Gem Reference Client.

For those seeking more in-depth technical experience, on Thursday, April 26, the Tech Summit concludes with a special event, which is also offered as a stand-alone, separate ticketed event. Intel Corporation's Sergey Ermolin will host a four-part workshop "Diving Into Deep Learning," from 10 am to 2 pm. Included as part of the RESO Tech Summit, a one-day pass also is available for $99 with details available at https://www.reso.org/diving-into-deep-learning.
