About the talk
We live in a fast evolving world and as we settle into new ways of doing things we need to make informed decisions quickly. Alongside this, buildings are playing an ever more important role in our work and home lives and we need to be able to understand this in minute detail. This inevitably leads to us more heavily relying on data, the more data we have, the more we can inform our decisions. We could collect data on every minute detail of how a person uses a building. But should we? Is it ethical? This session will explore some of the ethical challenges that real estate comes to terms with the ever growing need to collect and use data to inform our decision making.

Hello, and thank you very much for joining me to talk about the use of data and in particular looking at whether receptacle in real estate what I'd like to do for the next 20 minutes to talk about the growing influence of data generally. And then look at data ethics. And to put it into a real estate context. Is very well-documented that's the growth of data in the world is incredible and exponential and there's an often said phrase which is that over 90% of data in the world
the world has been created in the last two years. I think it's worth trying to visualize what that actually means if we've put a circle representing data It looks something like that This backdrop that we are getting huge amounts of data so that we are able to form our decisions. So why is this? In large part, it is because we are collecting data from everything that we use. What's the weather for CCTV on mobile devices or O2 sensors our buildings to make sure that we can collect things. There's an opportunity in everything to collect data.
