Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Real Estate

Artificial intelligence will replace many routine and replicable tasks, and so poses a long-run threat to demand for space. It therefore has the potential to disrupt many industries including manufacturing, hospitality, real estate, technology and finance. However, artificial intelligence should also support high-value human roles and enhance productivity, thus creating value for businesses. 

•             The impact of AI will be felt increasingly over the next decade, with many routine roles likely to be replaced. Low visibility over future headcount needs will drive further demand for flexible working space
•             Technology, media and creative industries will become key sources of demand for new space
•             Coupled with increasing automation, activity-based working and the Internet of Things will transform offices and building management
•             The office of the future will use space more efficiently, have more collaborative space, be healthier, and feature more highly trained staff
•             Asian enterprises can only reap the benefits of this transformation if they embrace AI early and invest in increasing the skills of their staff
•             The needs of large occupiers will revolve around intelligent buildings and office spaces equipped with advanced technology
•             Developers should be proactive and start to adopt such designs now
