OUR VISION

We want to change the way cities are designed and built.

We are building an AI capable of designing and optimizing how cities grow, in real time. A system with a pulse on population migration, social and economic position, environment, existing infrastructure, and market trends, in order to project what would be optimal to build.

Ultimately, we want everyone to live in safe, secure, and sustainable buildings. Using exponential technologies such as crowdsourcing and artificial intelligence, cities will respond to whatever is needed at any moment.

OUR STORY

Deepblocks was born at Singularity University’s Global Solutions Program, which brings people from diverse backgrounds together to learn how emerging technologies can be harnessed to redefine the world and solve some of our biggest challenges. Our team chose to tackle the Global Grand Challenge of Shelter. We developed a vision of employing artificial intelligence to solve the enormous complexities surrounding building projects, and providing tools that can be used to plan and build the cities of the future. Our founders drew from extensive backgrounds in artificial intelligence, real estate development, finance, and architecture.

Deepblocks was the only team in the history of SU to be accepted into all three of its startup programs in the same year (GSP, Incubator, and Accelerator). SU invested in the company, and some of SU's own investors soon followed suit.

Deepblocks' technology combines proprietary algorithms and artificial intelligence techniques to optimize the process of real estate development from a financial perspective. Our software performs a complete real-time analysis of financial and market data, in combination with local building regulations, to generate a set of optimal strategies for any real estate development project. As we compile a rich real estate database from cities around the world, the use of machine learning will provide unprecedented insights that will enable cities and developers to optimize decisions about where to build, what to build, and when to build.
