Nikhil Naik of MIT Media Lab Speaks at Boston Properties University
At this year’s Boston Properties University, we were very fortunate to have as a guest speaker Nikhil Naik from the MIT Media Lab. Nikhil’s presentation on StreetScore, an algorithm that assigns a score to a street view based on how safe it looks to people, was a huge hit with everyone who attended.
The video link below is a compressed version of Nikhil’s presentation. Nikhil’s work and insights with StreetScore provide us with a glimpse of the powerful tools that Big Data can play in real estate. His presentation was also a reminder that our customers, visitors and community are making conscious and subconscious evaluations of our properties every day.
