The Qatar National Vision 2030, as well as the 2022 FIFA World Cup, create unique infrastructure and logistical challenges that will be addressed by Palantir.
Palantir was founded on the conviction that it’s essential to preserve fundamental principles of privacy and civil liberties while using data. To ensure that their technology follows this original vision, they adhere to a set of principles that guide their technical and business decisions. They invest in building technology that promotes responsible data usage while empowering their employees. They also engage with independent experts in privacy law, policy, and ethics.
