With a team of 50+ AI specialists, geospatial engineers, data scientists, and real-time rendering developers, Blackshark.ai developed a unique solution that uses the Microsoft Azure Cloud and Artificial Intelligence to gain insights about our planet based on aerial data. A deep learning neural network segments and classifies buildings, vegetation and roads globally, and a patent-pending approach is used to reconstruct detected building attributes in highly detailed 3D. The outcome has an incredible level of detail, distinctive design and recognition value, and can be streamed by the player in real-time.

Creating an authentic 3D map of our planet

Blackshark.ai provides powerful insights into the world by extracting information from satellite imagery fully automatically.

A scalable artificial intelligence builds the core of the blackshark platform, detecting features with incredible precision and speed.

A novel machine learning approach was developed to train a neural network for new features rapidly, enabling Blackshark.ai to serve various use cases in many different industries.

A patented reconstruction technology allows streaming and rendering of detected 3D features in unmatched visual quality containing material properties and other semantic features.

Blackshark.ai technology is already in use by customers in various industries, ranging from autonomous driving to mapping/navigation, location intelligence, earth observation, geospatial industries, insurance, agro-tech and many more.

We are on a mission to answer questions such as:

  • Rapid automated 3D reconstruction of any given POI
  • How many solar panels are installed in India?
  • How many tents does a certain refugee camp have?
  • How many cars are parked in a specific parking lot?
