Yale Fox sits down with GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group) to discuss aggregating data across public and private institutions to increase transparency in real estate.
Recognized by Gehrson Lehman Group as an Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) machine-learning experts in the space, Yale is constantly developing unique and exciting ways to integrate AI/ML into everyday use. In 2013, Yale launched Rentlogic: a platform that analyzes millions of pieces of data to generate letter-grade ratings for buildings across New York City. This grading system arms prospective and current tenants with relevant information about the landlord as well as the current condition of the building. This tool was also created to reward those landlords who maintain a standard of excellence and quality of living for their tenants. Rentlogic is the result of Yale’s passion for creating a platform which fosters the transparency this market has typically lacked.
Yale has spent years studying and designing systems to monitor social behavior in the context of business development. He continues to publish papers and speak regularly at industry events regarding his research. Using sensors and statistics, Yale has proven his ability to create environments in which humans are inclined to behave a certain way. His conclusions have been leveraged to improve operations within businesses spanning several major industries.
In his spare time, Yale experiments AI/ML in fun and innovative ways. His latest passion project involves the build-out of a custom communication system for his dog, Elly. By combining AI with state-of-the-art sound and voice-recognition equipment, Elly will be able to converse with people, ask for food, and offer opinions.
