“This seminar will help appraisers and users of appraisal services develop the knowledge and skills they will require in a digital age.”
- John Cirincione, SRA 


What if you could accomplish more in less time? It may sound crazy, but the idea that appraising is relegated to retrospective analysis may no longer be relevant. Within five years, experts predict that 50% of our interactions will involve artificial intelligence (AI). That’s going to unlock an entirely new workflow for the appraisal profession and a new set of capabilities that will drive the back office to the forefront of business strategy. What is clear is that AI and the technologies associated with it will continue to transform how we interact with information and machines.
