Marty Smuin

CEO, Arturo

Protecting against assuming unsustainable risk

There’s a really funny scene in a movie by the name of Groundhog Day, where Bill Murray’s character says – you know, maybe God doesn’t know everything… Maybe he’s just been around so long that he’s experienced everything to the point where he knows what’s going to happen.


What a great description of AI, right? The more data you can get in about a certain thing, the better the predictability is going to be.

Marty Smuin, CEO of Arturo


Arturo is a property intelligence company which combines multispectral imagery, geographic data and customer portfolio insights with machine learning models in a single platform.

A lot has developed in property intelligence since we last spoke to Arturo on the podcast. Matthew Grant caught up with CEO Marty Smuin about how generative AI is adding a new dimension to property analysis.

Arturo knows that it is expensive to be wrong in insurance. Find out how Arturo is aiming to tackle relying on outdated public records, incomplete tax assessor data and more in this episode.
