About Anurag Banerjee
Anurag co-founded Quilt.AI January 2018 after having been an entrepreneur across multiple emerging market startups - always working on bottom of the pyramid issues - with a deep data focus.
This came after almost a decade at American Express in New York, in various global leadership positions across the business – on both the corporate and travel side. In his last role at American Express, he was responsible for growing the largest 150 clients of American Express as well as for acquiring new direct and channel businesses.
Co-Founder of Quilt.AI, Anurag Benarjee, joins Alberto Lidji to discuss the power of artificial intelligence, big data and the Internet to drive forward the global development agenda
A fascinating and thought-provoking conversation for anyone who's looking to understand attitudes and drive behaviour change at scale for the betterment of society.
What drives misogynistic attitudes? How do you know whether your philanthropic intervention is making a difference? Can AI and big data help improve girls' education and expected career outcomes? What about privacy considerations when analysing mass behaviour online? We discuss these questions and many more.
Quilt.AI is a mission-first technology company, seeking to increase empathy in the world. Using the Internet as a source of knowledge, inspiration and communication, Quilt.AI works on issues including climate change, gender equity and health across the world. Their work has focused on a range of thematic areas across the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The firm’s clients include some of the world’s most recognised for-profit and non-profit organisations. They’re headquartered in Singapore with a presence in New York, London, Zurich and New Delhi.
An insightful conversation that's perfectly aligned with today's global development needs and technological advances.
Anurag’s key takeaway: The Internet is still in its infancy. We think of it as something that’s been here forever but it’s still relatively new. The next version of the Internet, the way information is indexed, the way we experience it, these things are all still to come. These are fascinating times.
Editor's Note: This interview was conducted in August 2020. In October 2020, Quilt.AI became a corporate sponsor of The Do One Better! Podcast. The original interview was conducted well before there had been any conversations around sponsorship. Anurag Banerjee was invited as a guest on The Do One Better! Podcast purely on the merits of his work.
