Palantir Explains Palantir

July 1, 2015

I read a question about Palantir on Quora. You may be able to access it at but no promises. A person named Abhiram and then Kevin Simler provided some information. Here’s are three items I found interesting:

  1. At Palantir we specialize in analysis.
  2. The first important thing to note is that we don’t actually do the analysis ourselves.
  3. You could say that we help summarize large data sets, in the sense that we have to provide the analyst with a rich library of techniques and algorithms.

I think I understand.
