    Machine Learning and Spatial Thinking: Getting More from Valuation Models
    Advances in machine learning offer incredible potential for producing more accurate and timely real estate valuations. By allowing models to learn the complex non-linearities inherent in the market, human valuers are able to focus on the more interesting, and often more important, components of the valuation profession: Uncertainty, Interpretability and Fairness. Spatial data, models and evaluation are at the heart of innovation across these three higher level functions. Combining machine learning with rigorous spatial thinking and processes is the key to ensuring that valuations (and valuers) are best serving the needs of their constituents, customers and core business functions.
