Predicting Neighborhood Change Using Big Data and Machine Learning: Implications for Theory, Methods, and Practice.

January 9-10, 2020

UC Berkeley’s Urban Displacement Project and the University of Sydney’s Urban Housing Lab hosted a symposium on neighborhood change funded by the Urban Studies Foundation and hosted by the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. The conference brought together urban researchers from universities across the United States as well as Spain, Australia, England, Argentina, Germany, and Singapore, who engaged in a lively conversation with Bay Area planners and housing advocates. The research projects discussed over the two days use machine learning and big data in innovative ways to explore, map and quantify urban change in some of the world’s most dynamic cities.
