The Growing Role of Geospatial Data and Aerial Imagery in Insurance

If a picture is worth a thousand words, insurers are about to become the largest collection in the world as they race to use data. Technology breakthroughs in data, AI, and cloud are exploiting computer vision techniques, troves of historical satellite earth imagery, and cameras everywhere to understand risk more intimately and at scale. Theoretically, “anything a human can see, a computer can see better.” Practically, data from images can be harvested at scale and used broadly to automate expensive manual efforts that have been a historical chokepoint for getting value from images. Front, middle, and back office tasks are now all on display for reimagining new end-to-end digital experiences for customers, agents, and employees using images. We’ll hear from the leaders in aerial imagery and geospatial data about the newest ways images and data are transforming the business.
