Palantir Metropolis


Palantir Metropolis, by Palantir Technologies, (formerly known as Palantir Finance) is software for data integration, information management and quantitative analytics.

Palantir Metropolis connects to commercial, proprietary and public data sets and discovers trends, relationships and anomalies, including predictive analytics.

Aided by 120 “forward-deployed engineers” of Palantir during 2009, Peter Cavicchia III of JPMorgan used Metropolis to monitor employee communications and alert the insider threat team when an employee showed any signs of potential disgruntlement: the insider alert team would further scrutinize the employee and possibly conduct physical surveillance after hours with bank security personnel. The Palantir Metropolis team used emails, download activity, browser histories, and GPS locations from JP Morgan owned smartphones and their transcripts of digitally recorded phone conversations to search, aggregate, sort, and analyze this information for any specific keywords, phrases, and patterns of behavior.
