OSINT Analysis of Sudan and South Sudan

In this session, we will demonstrate how Palantir can draw from a plethora of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) data sources (including academic research, blogs, news media, NGO reports and United Nations studies) to rapidly construct an understanding of the conflict underlying this somewhat anomalous 21st Century event. Using a suite of Palantir Helpers developed for OSINT analysis, the video performs relational, temporal, statistical, geospatial, and social network analysis of over a dozen open sources of data.

Phi Beta Iota: There is no analysis in the above video. Given the money they are raising, and the billions in claimed value, we find ourselves shocked.  This is sad. Having said that, we do see some potential in Palantir if it merged with SILOBREAKER, embraced CATALYST, and actually got a grip on sources, methods, and human networks.
