OUR MISSION

Monitoring drivers of economic development across the emerging markets so that financial capital can advance societal well-being

Our Roots

Atlas AI was founded in 2018 as a Public Benefit Corporation by a team of Stanford University Professors - Marshall Burke, Stefano Ermon, and David Lobell - based on their pioneering research at the intersection of Economics, Earth Science, and Computer Science. Marshall, Stefano and David had spent years advancing research on how to apply cutting edge AI techniques to develop better quality and more localized socioeconomic measures in data sparse environments like Sub-Saharan Africa.

Atlas AI resulted from their desire to translate these research techniques into market-ready data sets, and to expand access to insights about economic development in the emerging markets to help solve important societal problems.

Our Values

The following four values are central principles guiding how we build Atlas AI.  We seek out new colleagues who have exemplified these values in their past work experience:

Improving Lives

We aspire to develop technologies that benefit underserved and at-risk communities, while respecting the multi-faceted and nuanced pathways to impact for which technology often plays only a contributing role.

In Service of Each Other

We care about and invest in each team member’s personal and professional journey while at Atlas AI. We prioritize diversity of background and experience as cornerstones of developing a resilient organization and impactful products.

Honesty & Reflection

We are honest with ourselves and each other, and learn from our successes and failures.

Embracing the Unsolved & Undiscovered

We are scientists and explorers who lean into solving complex, often thorny problems. We seek to understand the entire canvas of our customer’s needs, so that we can expand the scientific frontiers necessary to yield relevant solutions.

Meet the team

We are a global team working to make a meaningful dent in some of the most entrenched societal problems of our time.
