Michael and I'm a co-founder at Okapi Okapi helps landlords improve their in the Lie by focusing on improving the comfort and improving or 01:16 increasing the income these two are tightly coupled because when you have a happy tenants, you're more likely to increase your income, but also we 01:26 find them. Common because we can use the same machine learning algorithms and I'm not going to curse too much. I promise but we can use the same 01:34 machine learning algorithms that can help us anticipate the tenant needs to use turns to pay to turn commercial needs as well 01:41
