AGENDA [.pdf]

The growing volume of data generated within cities presents an unprecedented opportunity for the real estate industry to better segment markets and products, target policies and investment, and capture value clouded by information asymmetries. When coupled with an understanding of human behavior and evidence-based decision-making, “Big Data” – defined by the four “Vs” of volume, velocity, variety, and veracity – has proven to be transformative in industries and activities from retail and healthcare to political campaigns. The real estate industry may be next. The 3rd Annual Conference on Sustainable Real Estate, presented by the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate Center for the Sustainable Built Environment will explore the potential to harness big data analytics and informatics to fundamentally shift our ability to understand, measure, and improve the sustainability and efficiency of real estate markets and create new investment opportunities. Speakers will discuss the opportunities embedded in this expanding wave of data and present case studies from a range of industries that demonstrate how data-driven decision-making and emerging business models can lead to innovations within the real estate industry – from design and construction to development and asset management.
