Advances in Housing Technology: Equalizer or Trojan Horse?
Time: 1:05 – 2:05 p.m.
The debate continues. Advances in housing and home-loan-related technology, whether it’s new credit-scoring models, mortgage underwriting algorithms, automated home appraisal solutions, the rise of “digital” mortgage lenders, or targeted marketing tools, hold promise for promoting greater access to housing opportunity – in addition to gains in efficiency, speed, lowered costs, and overall customer satisfaction. These same technologies are also viewed with skepticism by policymakers, regulators, and racial justice advocates: automated solutions, artificial intelligence, and non-traditional data sources may simply mask, or worse, replicate, existing biases – rather than eliminate them. Against the backdrop of a continuing national re-awakening to racial justice issues, and the administration’s laser-focus on the racial wealth and homeownership gap, our panelists consider the practical, policy and regulatory concerns surrounding advances in housing technology.

Positioning for Success in the Age of Digital Assets
Time: 2:15 – 3:30 p.m.
As digital assets enter the mainstream, there is abundant opportunity for innovation and growth across the financial services industry—for traditional institutions and new entrants alike. Both groups, however, will face challenges. Traditional institutions will need to build the technological and compliance infrastructure to position themselves to offer digital asset products to their customers, while new entrants will need to develop mature risk management capabilities and discipline to build confidence in the industry and demonstrate that they are credible business partners. Financial services firms of all types and sizes will need to navigate a shifting regulatory landscape as policymakers weigh the risks and benefits of these new technologies. This panel will explore the factors that will play into building a successful economy in the age of digital assets.
