Antony Slumbers coined the term "Space As a Service" in 2014. In an age where we are transitioning from Products to Services, and from Ownership to Access, with the expectation of on-demand availability, the demand for real estate to follow suit is inevitable.

Antony Slumbers presents an eye-opening exploration into the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the realm of real estate.

Within this context, Antony will shed light on how AI will fundamentally change the nature of demand for real estate.
