When you think of AI, where does your mind go?
For so many people, the phrase ‘artificial intelligence’ conjures up images of robots, sci-fi movies, and maybe even a touch of fear.
But what if AI could be the key to unlocking badly needed housing supply throughout all of Canada?
November 2, I’m excited to be collaborating on an exciting panel:
AI & The Housing Crisis
How Artificial Intelligence Will Transform the Approvals Process, Clear the Way For New Development, & Unlock Vital Housing Supply
>>Register Now – https://lnkd.in/gzP9CJf3
Presented by the Urban Land Institute of British Columbia, this event will provide an opportunity to discuss the variety of creative ways municipalities and developers could utilize AI to positively impact the housing crisis.
At the event, you’ll learn…
⚡ How municipalities are reconsidering the role of technology in their approvals processes, and how new technology will influence housing planning and policy in the coming years.
⚡ How AI can free up our municipal officials to focus on sensitive, nuanced work only a human can do—while creating a drastically more efficient approvals process.
⚡ An inside peek at the cutting-edge AI tools Kelowna is building, the research behind their work, and how they plan to implement these tools for game-changing community impact.
⚡ How AI can help us unlock housing supply (even in some previously looked-over and unexpected places).
⚡How leaders in the land use and real estate industries are helping to pioneer this important work, and why this matters for the long-term progress & visibility of women leaders in these fields.
⚡ How we can shift the conversation around AI from a future-focused dialogue rooted in curiosity or suspicion—to a results-focused, immediately relevant, and highly strategic initiative for positive change.
Plus, you’ll have a chance to discuss your thoughts on the role of AI with me and my two brilliant co-presenters, Ryan Smith (Divisional Director of Planning and Development Services at City of Kelowna) and kirsten sutton (Home Designer and Founder of D3 Dimension Drafting and Design Inc.).
If you’re curious about how AI is about to transform our industry, this event is a can’t miss.
Join us for this holistic, refreshing conversation to learn what’s possible when we leverage AI to its fullest potential.
Can’t wait to see you there,
