With the advent of climate change impacts now becoming very evident via the size and frequency of disasters, it is the insurance industry that is taking notice. They cannot depend on what losses have been for decades to project into the future about what their losses might be for the properties they insure. In this podcast we learn about how 3D technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI), using high resolution arial mapping, can help insurance companies price their insurance properly, and understand what the status is of individual homes and business based on their physical setting. Guy Attar, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer for GeoX is the guest. He explains their processes that include and how large and even small insurance companies can take advantage of their services to provide detailed information on individual properties. Larger re-insurance companies can also benefit from their technology services. Additionally, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has taken advantage of GeoX services for post-disaster damage assessment.
