We improved and expanded our existing projects, such as improving disaster relief efforts and combating slavery in supply chains, and built new partnerships to tackle issues like chronic homelessness, food insecurity, and environmental crime.
Below are a few highlights from 2014. I speak for all Palantirians when I say that it is an honor to support all of our incredible non-profit partners that work tirelessly to improve and save lives around the world.
With allegiances, power structures, and front lines constantly in flux, it has become difficult to safely and effectively deliver humanitarian assistance to civilians in the region.
The Carter Center and Physicians for Human Rights use Palantir to analyze open source data and provide humanitarian organizations, mediators, and government partners with up-to-date awareness of the situation on the ground. Their collaboration makes it possible to bring relief to the most vulnerable people affected by the Syrian crisis.
The overwhelming amount of data accompanying these commitments obscures the answers to critical questions: is this working? What can we do better?
CGI uses Palantir to better understand their impact and answer these questions. By integrating nearly a decade’s worth of CGI data with 20 datasets of global indicators, CGI was able to evaluate which commitments have been successful and where they could be more effective.
We are forging partnerships with some of the most effective foundations in the world and undertaking innovative ventures in areas such as global health and financial services for the poor. With the debut of our upcoming internship and fellowship programs, more students and Palantirians will have the opportunity to work directly with our partner organizations.
