In this episode, The Real Estate Tech Guys sit down with Nick Rancis to learn about the Fraunhofer Institute in Boston. Nick works for Tech Bridge, a program at Fraunhofer which helps startups de-risk, validate, demonstrate and pilot technologies in a real-world setting.

Episode 2: Michael Beckerman on AI and CRE Tech

In our latest episode, the Real Estate Tech Guys sit down with Michael Beckerman, CEO of CRETech to discuss AI, WeWork, self-driving cars, and how these things can impact commercial real estate.

Everything is accelerating in commercial real estate technology. There has never been so much progress, traction and investment in technology for commercial real estate than in today’s world. There are plenty of great products and solutions that are making tenants’, landlords’ and corporations’ lives better.

The biggest trend that Michael sees is within buildings. WeWork is creating an experience for people in the workplace and AI and self-driving vehicles are coming into play as well. He believes WeWork is a true game changer; that AI is transforming commercial real estate; and that voice will be the next great platform.

“Voice is going to be a pivotal thing with how people communicate maintenance requests, conference rooms, and how they communicate property management issues,” says Michael. Even in everyday life, for example, if you talk about something, an ad will likely pop up the next day relating to what you were talking about. It’s tailored to your needs.

We also look at how CrowdComfort is gathering occupant data that hasn’t being gathered in meaningful ways before, and how this helps property owners and landlords better understand their tenants and what their tenants need.

Take a deep dive into what the future of commercial real estate will look like with AI, WeWork, and self-driving cars with input from Michael Beckerman.
