Midwest Real Estate Data

Chris Haran is chief technology officer of Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), a Chicagoland-area multiple listing service with over 45,000 real estate professional members.

MRED recently implemented the first two modules of Computer Vision in partnership with restb.AI, with plans for full implementation in the following months. This allows MRED users to upload photos that will be read by artificial intelligence (AI) to identify exteriors, room types and features within those rooms. Within seconds, the AI identifies and displays everything it “reads” in the photos. That will then be automatically added into listing input fields so agents no longer have to type or select fields manually.
