Atlas AI

Data that unleashes human potential

and drives sustainable development.

Our mission is to advance progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals

Atlas AI generates actionable intelligence on agricultural and economic trends across the developing world. We are a tech start-up focused on social impact, founded in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation. Our products support decision-makers in emerging markets and across the global development sector.


We bring world-class AI solutions to sustainable development.

Atlas AI's machine learning algorithms combine terabytes of satellite imagery and other geospatial assets with a rich array of ground-truth data. The result is a high resolution view of economic trends, across the developing world, for a fraction of the cost of surveys. We validate our models using gold standard data published by governments, and our methods are backed by rigorously peer reviewed scientific research.
