Alex Karp, the CEO of Palantir, a Big Data analytics company (US government organizations, banks and private companies among its clients), co-founded in 2003 by Peter Thiel and listed on the stock exchange since 2020, met with Ukrainian President Zelensky. Talks discussed how Palantir's technology could help the country resist the Russian invasion.

According to Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transition Fedorov, Karp was the first visiting CEO since the start of the military operation against the Baltic country. Fedorov also announced on his Telegram channel that “the company is ready to open an office in Ukraine and to start a joint development with Ukrainian specialists. Further cooperation with Palantir will help strengthen our army and defeat the enemy as quickly as possible, as technology plays an important role in modern warfare ”.

Born in Palo Alto and now based in Denver, Palantir (the name of the company is a reference to the seer stones of the "Lord of the Rings" that allow you to communicate, even at a great distance, with anyone who is in turn observing one) has grown thanks to the investments of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital linked to the CIA. Palantir has built its reputation for analyzing large volumes of data for intelligence agencies and governments around the world. According to rumors, his analyzes helped the United States track down and kill Bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.

Among its American clients, Palantir boasts, according to rumors, the CIA, the FBI, the Commando for Special Operations and West Point. The company was also involved in Project Maven, the Pentagon's project to develop Artificial Intelligence technologies to shorten the timeline of battlefield decision making.

At the end of May, the partnership between Palantir and the Stellantis group was announced: the company's software would allow the car manufacturer to improve the collection and analysis of information from factories, the supply chain and cars in circulation.
