The data from JPMorganChase isn’t visibile to Palantir as an organization, but to the bank.
This headline is weird and as accurate as “Microsoft knows everything about you” because the bank uses SQL Server. Or “the Python developers” because python and pandas is used to link a bunch of data together.
Since this is Bloomberg, I would expect them to know the difference between software and data services. Google gets your data when you use them (except for enterprise), most other products don’t.
Cynically, this seems like oppo PR against Thiel. How could you prove this suspicion?
Cloud same, but they host and promise not to do anything. Like any other enterprise cloud product.
The only data they gave us was either open sets like weather or census or stuff anyone can buy like Quintiles. So there was no “magic data set” we could mix in or something.
If you’re really paranoid, then all non-OSS software.
So again, why is Palantir more worrisome than Salesforce?
>The military success led to federal contracts on the civilian side. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services uses Palantir to detect Medicare fraud. The FBI uses it in criminal probes. The Department of Homeland Security deploys it to screen air travelers and keep tabs on immigrants.
