Seeing the Unseeable: Welcome to the House of Data
Named for the far-sighted “seeing stones” of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Ring” trilogy, Palantir aims to radically change how we analyze information. Founded in 2004 by a group of Stanford computer scientists and PayPal alumni, including Peter Thiel, the still-stealthy company has thrived--in part on classified work for US intelligence agencies. Shyam Sankar, who drives Palantir’s new business initiatives, makes the case that massive data-mining is more than just another cool tool--it’s the key to solving the world’s toughest problems. He’ll explain why in conversation with technology investor Esther Dyson.
