Leaked Palantir Doc Reveals Uses, Specific Functions And Key Clients | TechCrunch

Since its founding in 2004, Palantir has managed to grow into a billion dollar company while being very surreptitious about what it does exactly. Conjecture abounds. The vague facts dredged up by reporters confirm that Palantir has created a data mining system used extensively by law enforcement agencies and security companies to connect the dots between known criminals.

TechCrunch has received a private document from 2013 which reveals the company’s extensive trove of data analysis tools and lists many of its key clients. The document is currently being passed around as an investor prospectus for a new secondary round.

In short, the description above is in part correct. But, thanks to this leaked information, we now know far more about the secretive company.

And I can not stop to marvel at the thought of that headline being about the real Palantíri.
