Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts – Machine Learning Research
The cooperation between FPRE and the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is aimed at research. For example, as part of an Innosuisse project (Swiss Agency for Innovation Promotion), joint research was conducted between 2018 and 2020 on a project entitled “Space-time machine learning models for valuation and prediction of real estate objects”. The goal of this project was to investigate modern methods of data science and machine learning that can handle large amounts of data in order to develop novel non-stationary models for the pricing of real estate objects.
