Description:

Palantir was founded in 2004 by a team of PayPal alumni and Stanford computer scientists that aim to radically change how groups analyze information.

Based in downtown Palo Alto, California, Palantir offers various applications that are used to integrate, visualize, as well as analyze structured, unstructured, relational, temporal, and geospatial data.

The Palantir team works to build software which enables organizations to understand massive amounts of disparate data, solve technical issues that will help in solving human problems, combat terrorism, prosecute crimes, fight fraud, and eliminate waste.

They work to deploy their data fusion platforms even in the hardest problems presented.
