Wall Street Journal: “A little bit of Silicon Valley in the Intelligence Community”

Posted by Kathleen Smith

We stumbled upon a very interesting article on the Wall Street Journal‘s web site about a new company, Palantir Technologies, that’s creating new software solutions to help intelligence analysts sift through tons of disparate data and make the connections that foil terrorist plots. As one of the latest entrants into the government spy-services marketplace, Palantir has designed what many intelligence analysts say is the most effective tool to date to investigate terrorist networks.

We found this article very interesting in that it showcases how government agencies — including the Pentagon and the CIA — are using innovative software solutions such as Palantir’s to keep our nation safe.
