Bouygues Immobilier, a leading real estate developer, organized a roundtable on AI at MIPIM in Cannes. Participants included prominent real estate investors and data scientists.

Whilst for many real estate investors and managers AI seems like a futuristic topic, Urban Campus routinely uses machine learning and other advanced methods to operate its spaces and manage its community.

AI algorithms are powerful tools to analyse data. That said, we owe to the community that live and work in our spaces to not only comply with data privacy laws but to ensure that the data is solely used to render better services to its members. At Urban Campus we have a people-centric approach in everything we do. That obviously extend to data management

Co-Liv! was the first global conference dedicated to the co-living movement. It was organized by PUREHOUSE LAB from 7-9 December 2017 and attracted more than 100 participants from all over the world.

Co-living means different things to different people and there are multiple economic models that are emerging. However, the overall objective is the same: to create a housing offer that is attractive, community-based, and affordable.

John van Oost and Christopher Bledsoe, co-founder, and CEO of Ollie, spoke about the risks and opportunities of financing co-living ventures offering both the US and European perspectives. Leading institutions, developers, and REITs have noticed the co-living movement and are starting to be active investors in both the buildings and the operators.

John van Oost participated to a discussion panel on the digital transformation of the real estate industry and the emergence of new space usages such as co-working and co-living.
The conference was organized by the alumni association of the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique in Paris.
With more than 300 participants, the event demonstrated the significant interest in these topics which are at the core of what Urban Campus does.
