iPresCons is an Artificial Intelligence application, developed by researchers of the UPO based on a contract signed with the company DETEA, S.A. for the participation of the Research Group PAIDI Data Science & Big Data Lab (TIC 254), in the R&D project: “Predictive models for the collaborative management of estimates in client relation processes” (in Spanish, Modelos predictivos para la gestión colaborativa de estimaciones en procesos de relación con el cliente), to which DETEA, S.A. submitted to the call of the Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA, in Spanish). This app is useful in calculating the cost of a construction, as it predicts a price range for a specific real estate based on Machine Learning and Big Data techniques.
