We believe in augmenting human intelligence, not replacing it.With good data and the right technology, people and institutions today can still solve hard problems and change the world for the better.In 2004, when we looked at the available technology, we saw products that were too rigid to handle novel problems, and custom systems that took too long to deploy and required too many services to maintain and improve.We saw automated approaches that failed against adaptive adversaries, and all-or-nothing access controls that forced organizations to make unacceptable trade-offs between collaborating and securing sensitive data from misuse.We saw a need for a different kind of technology, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded Palantir.
