Our Approach

 

We collaborate closely with our partners – nonprofits, governments, companies, and academic and research institutes – to identify problems AI can help solve. Working with them, we build datasets, develop and test solutions, iterate, and scale.

Based in India, we are close to the problems we are trying to solve. We push our innovations out of the lab and into the field quickly and interact frequently with beneficiaries, users, and decision makers in order to develop insights critical to our AI efforts. Our work is open access and free for use towards improving the lives of others.
