Article Series Part 2 – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning in the Real Estate Industry: Opportunities in the Real Estate Industry

In the first part of this series, we defined the important concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL). Now we will dive deeper into how these technologies can be used in the real estate industry to accelerate sustainability work and streamline decision-making processes towards a greener future.

  1. Automation and Decision Making

AI can automate many processes in the real estate industry, which can increase efficiency and reduce the workload of human workers. Automation can range from routine tasks, such as setting and adjusting the temperature in buildings, to more complex tasks, such as generating decision support based on data analysis. With AI, property owners and managers can make more informed and efficient decisions.

  1. Simulation of Decisions

AI and ML models can be used to simulate the outcomes of various strategic decisions, based on extensive datasets and predetermined criteria. This means that companies can carry out “what if” analyzes and compare different strategies before making large investments or making changes to their properties. Simulations can also help predict and plan for possible risks and challenges.

  1. Forecasts

AI and ML offer a powerful ability to make predictions based on historical data. These forecasts can apply to everything from expected energy consumption to impending maintenance needs. By understanding and anticipating trends, property owners can become more proactive, helping them optimize operations, minimize unexpected costs and reduce environmental impact.

  1. Reduced energy and resource requirements

By learning and adapting to patterns in energy use and other factors, AI can help us reduce our energy and resource needs. This can include everything from optimizing lighting and ventilation based on when and how the building is used, to identifying and addressing inefficiencies in the building’s energy system.

  1. ESG Optimization

AI can play a key role in helping property owners achieve their ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) goals. By analyzing and optimizing factors such as energy and water use, AI can contribute to reducing the environmental impact of buildings. In addition, AI can be used to improve social aspects of property management, such as ensuring safe and healthy indoor environments, and governance aspects, such as maintaining regularity and transparency in property management.

  1. Energy optimization and choice of energy type

One of the most exciting applications of AI in the real estate industry is in energy optimization. AI can not only help optimize current energy use, but also predict future energy needs and adjust systems accordingly. This can include everything from optimizing heating and cooling times based on inertial control and weather forecasts, to adapting energy use to the availability of renewable energy. Our AI can also help choose energy types in real time depending on price and environmental impact.

The role of AI technology in the real estate industry is becoming increasingly central, and its potential to drive the transition to more sustainable and efficient buildings is huge. However, the introduction of AI in the real estate industry also brings new challenges and questions, especially when it comes to data protection and ethics. We will cover these topics in more detail in the next part of this article series.
