Bringing Digitalization Home: How Can Technology Address Housing Challenges?
Digitalization—the use of automated digital technologies to collect, process, analyze, distribute, use, and sell information—is spurring fundamental change in the way housing is produced, marketed, sold, financed, managed, and lived in.
This symposium will feature leading scholars and experts from academia, industry, government, and advocacy groups. Participants will examine the nature and extent of technologically-driven changes and assess whether these changes are likely to further (or hamper) efforts to address economic, social, and environmental challenges, such as housing affordability, discrimination, and climate change. Speakers will also suggest strategies that the public, private, and non-profit sectors can use to produce more equitable and environmentally sustainable housing.
