Transforming how billions of dollars are invested for a more sustainable future

Atlas AI brings together world class machine learning talent and deep domain expertise to develop software that allows customers to plan and monitor high stakes investments including infrastructure development initiatives and market expansion programs.

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.
