Opening keynote - The fourth industrial revolution: Digital transformation in business

The global property business is ripe for digital disruption.  More money is going into innovation than ever before. What we build and how we build is going to change the industry and cities across the world. Digital twins are going to lead the disruption and change the way we deliver smart cities. All property development is going to change - not just the places we create but the use of technology to create energy and other systems that support cities. In the future, buildings will learn from software and be independently responsive.
