  • Publication number: 20210358031
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to creation and operation of a marketplace among trusted small and medium sized banks for participation in commercial loans too large for an individual participating bank to undertake on its own. This technology can be applied to formation of other marketplaces in which trust matters and controlled dissemination of opportunity information, as in layers or rounds, proceeds manually. Aspects of the technology disclosed can be used by initiators and participants to syndicate loans once a marketplace is established, whether the market is established applying the technology disclosed or otherwise. This technology also can be applied to syndicate other opportunities or to resell participations in syndicated loans that have closed and been funded.

  • Publication number: 20210350038
    Abstract: Systems and methods for rapidly developing annotated computer models of structures and properties is provided. The system generates three-dimensional (3D) models of structures and property using a wide variety of digital imagery, and/or can process existing 3D models created by other systems. The system processes the 3D models to automatically identify candidate objects within the 3D models that may be suitable for annotation, such as roof faces, chimneys, windows, gutters, etc., using computer vision techniques to automatically identify such objects. Once the candidate objects have been identified, the system automatically generates user interface screens which gather relevant information related to the candidate objects, so as to rapidly obtain, associate, and store annotation information related to the candidate objects.

  • Publication number: 20210327283
    Abstract: A system and method for flight planning for an unmanned aircraft. The system generates an aerial imagery map of a capture area and determines a footprint of a structure present in the capture area by marking the structure. The system determines a difference between a takeoff elevation of the unmanned aircraft and a predetermined elevation above a center of the structure and calibrates the difference between the takeoff elevation of the unmanned aircraft and the predetermined elevation above the center of the structure. The system determines, based on the calibration, a flight path elevation of the unmanned aircraft to capture images of the structure. The system generates a flight plan based on criteria for capturing the images of the structure and executes the flight plan.

  • Publication number: 20210209844
    Abstract: A system and method for generating models from digital images in an interactive environment comprising a memory and a processor in communication with the memory. The processor captures or derives metadata for one or more digital images. The processor derives transforms from the metadata to align the digital images with one or more three-dimensional (“3D”) models of objects/structures represented in the digital image. The processor generates an interactive environment which allows a user to view a contextual model of each of the objects/structures in two dimensional (“2D”) and 3D views.
