Activity 5
AI to Predict House Prices

How does an AI predict house prices?

AIs learn from historical data. An AI that has analyzed the historical prices of a neighborhood-based on information such as square footage, age etc can be used to predict the price of any house in the neighborhood based on the same characteristics/features such as square footage, age etc.

Let's collect the data needed to build the AI

  • In this activity, students will build an AI by collecting data from a real estate website called Redfin. They can choose the neighborhood they want to collect the data from.

  • Students also have the option to download data from public repositories (a) Option 1 
    (b) Option 2

  • Goal of this activity is to build a regression AI.

This video shows how data can be downloaded from a neighborhood of your choice. You can demonstrate this live in the class.

We will use the dataset we collected to build a regression AI.

Observe and Discuss

Discussion

1. Do you think the AI is doing a good job at predicting the prices of houses?

2. Which feature in the dataset has maximum impact on price?

3. Can you quantify how good or bad the AI is?
