Event description
This academia-policy-practice workshop will explore how housing tech is changing the housing system and the implications for (in)equality

About this Event

From mortgage credit scores to smart home apps, advances in data and technology are dramatically reshaping how housing is bought and sold by homeowners and investors, operated by landlords, and inhabited by all of us. New technologies could address problems like energy inefficiency, unaffordability, and undersupply of housing. But without an explicit focus on social justice, such advances may reinforce existing housing market inequalities through facilitating discrimination and exclusion, enabling surveillance of tenants, and contributing to rent increases and displacement. This interactive policy-practice-academia workshop asks;

How will advances in housing tech change the housing system over the next decade?

And how can we ensure that housing tech challenges, rather than exacerbates existing housing inequalities?
