Responding to COVID-19

We are humbled to be supporting a diverse range of institutions as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and adapt for the future. Here, you can find updates on our work, information on our approach to protecting privacy, and resources for institutions to accelerate their responses to the crisis. We’ll update this page regularly as the outbreak evolves.

Combating the Outbreak

Organizations across the healthcare system are currently deploying Palantir to accelerate and strengthen their ability to combat the COVID-19 outbreak, from tracing the spread of the virus to accelerating production of critical medical supplies.

We are ready to deploy our technology to organizations on the front lines of the outbreak and encourage institutions seeking support to reach out to covid19response@palantir.com

We believe that it’s critical to uphold our values during a crisis.

Protecting Privacy and Civil Liberties

We believe that it’s critical to uphold our values during a crisis. Organizations must maintain the highest privacy and data protection standards, even under extraordinary circumstances. Our longstanding commitment to building privacy-protective technology ensures that our partners can integrate and analyze their own data in ways that are consistent with legal and ethical considerations.

Public and private institutions around the world have trusted Palantir software to help them make use of their most sensitive data for more than 15 years. These organizations, and the communities they serve, require their data to be processed in a secure, reliable, and transparent way, and our software is purpose-built to meet these requirements.

  • Medical Supply Chain

    Commercial manufacturers and government agencies are using Palantir collaboratively to meet unprecedented demand for supplies, even as factories and ports close around the world. Medical suppliers are gaining novel insight into their global supply chains, understanding demand changes in real time, tracing system bottlenecks to their source, and optimizing decisions under challenging circumstances. Governments and manufacturers are also beginning to model scenarios and decisions in Palantir to understand and plan for their potential effects.
