NUS Hackers Friday Hacks: “On Impact: An Introduction to Palantir”

By

This coming Friday, Palantir will be at the National University of Singapore to give a recruitment talk.

All interested developers are invited to join Palantir’s Kevin Lee, who will discuss how Palantir is revolutionizing the analysis of hard and important problems that our world faces today.

Kevin is a Forward Deployed Engineer who is starting up Palantir’s new Singapore office, which serves as the regional HQ for Asia. He attended Stanford University on a PSC scholarship, graduating in 2006 with a BS in Computer Science with Distinction. He subsequently worked on a wide array of public policy issues as an Administrative Officer in the Prime Minister’s Office and Ministry of Finance, before making a happy return to his technical roots at Palantir to help organizations in the public, private and non-profit sectors solve their hardest and most important problems.

Here’s a brief introduction to Palantir:

We build the technology that allows people at the world’s most critical institutions to make sense of their data. We solve the technical problems, so they can solve the human ones. Combating terrorism. Tracking disease outbreaks. Finding missing and exploited children. We believe that with the right technology and enough data, people can still solve hard problems and change the world for the better.

What can you expect from the talk? You will be able to view a live demo of Palantir’s data fusion platforms, and learn how you can be a part of Palantir’s mission. Food will be served after the talk, and one lucky registrant will get the chance to win a Nexus 7 at the end of the event.
