Arturo partners with Urban Sky

AI-powered predictive analytics platform, Arturo has entered into a partnership with Urban Sky to incorporate the company’s stratospheric photos into Arturo’s US property images database.

Urban Sky’s Microballoon captures broad area, high-resolution imagery from up to 60,000 feet above sea level using technology that is more cost-effective than traditional aerial photography.

“For insurance companies, precise and high-frequency property data is critical to making smart decisions that can effectively mitigate risk,” said John-Isaac Clark, CEO of Arturo. “Our machine learning technology excels at identifying property conditions and characteristics and predicting issues, but our ability to provide the greatest value is dependent on access to high-quality, on-demand imagery. By adding Urban Sky to our network of image providers, we are once again heightening the level of accuracy and insights for our clients.”
