VTS CEO Nick Romito Talks Open Data for AI and Machine Learning in CRE
With AI and machine learning becoming buzz words in Commercial and Corporate Real Estate, more and more companies are capturing comprehensive data and realizing the need for open platforms.
Fully leveraging AI and machine learning is five years away in real estate, estimates Nick Romito, CEO and co-founder of VTS, a leading leasing and asset management company, "Today’s mindset is that it is just a foreign thing."
