Artificial Intelligence is a massive subject, and one that I’m enthralled by, so I’m going to do my best to squish this answer into a Magic Minute (Lorimer style)!
A.I. has already permeated our industry, and it's pervasive; Redfin, Siri, bots (plugins), etc.
When the two worlds collide, A.I. combined with Big Data, it can pack a really powerful punch. This is the new frontier, and we are all still really just beginning to discover what it has to offer. The next natural thought Real Estate agents usually have is, “Will Artificial Intelligence and robots replace us?”
The answer is: Robots don’t have empathy, hope or emotions, and those qualities are most important when selling houses.
So, NO, I don’t think they will ever completely take over. A.I. will augment us, not replace us… UNLESS we let it. Those of us who embrace and harness the powers of it will lead successful careers. But, on the flipside, those of us who don’t and fight against it will mostly likely fade into insignificance.
Thanks for watching and being part of the rebellion
