Founder & CEO
The idea for Banjo started when its Founder, Damien Patton, became determined to solve one of the most common but difficult problems out there -- making the world's disparate data purposeful -- and doing so live. Over the past 7 years, Banjo has continued to pioneer artificial intelligence technology that reinvents what's possible in a truly connected world.
Banjo, born from Damien winning an engineering hackathon at Google in 2010, is the world's first Live-Time Intelligence platform that gives decision makers the ability to understand what is happening live, anywhere. Imagine how many lives will be saved when we deliver live-time information to know exactly what is happening, where it is happening, the moment it happens.
Damien is an industry authority on the ethical use of Artificial Intelligence and data. Banjo’s first patents were focused on protecting user privacy by delivering information without any personally identifiable information. As a military veteran of Desert Storm and former crime scene investigator, Damien draws on this experience for Banjo's mission of saving lives and reducing human suffering by using technology for good.
