Duke students sign pledge not to apply for jobs at Palantir over ICE contracts

PALT

Their reasoning for the suspension is due to Palantir’s connections to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Despite student efforts to oust Palantir from Duke career fairs, the university is standing strong against students. School administrators believe Palantir has the right to be on campus and will not be suspending the company's access to future Duke career fairs and events. Vinik Dean of the Pratt School of Engineering Ravi Venkat Bellamkonda told The Chronicle, that even though Palantir’s systems are “used to enforce immigration policies that are deeply disturbing,” the university must protect “access to our campus to [all] people and companies that we find objectionable,” adding that cannot be up to any particular group to “decide for everyone which companies are okay or not.”. Although Duke is not the only university behind “Students Pledge #NoTechForICE” campaign, sophomore Jeremy Carballo Pineda, started the online campaign representing the university.

Palantir Technologies Granted FedRAMP Authorization

PALT

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Palantir Technologies, Inc., a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, has been granted a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization by the United States Government. FedRAMP is a government-wide program that standardizes the approach toward security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud-based products and services. As more federal agencies make their move to the cloud, regulators created the FedRAMP program to authorize specific cloud-based service providers who meet their stringent guidelines to assist agencies with this transition. With this newly granted authorization, Palantir is accredited by the US Government to provide its proven data integration, analytics and operational platforms to federal agencies. “With our FedRAMP authorization in place, Palantir is eager to build upon our 15-year history of partnering closely with the US Government and looks forward to working with more federal agencies as they embark upon data modernization and cloud migration efforts,” said Akash Jain, President (USG) and CTO of Palantir.

Palantir Wins Pentagon Contract Worth $111 Million for Army Software

PALT

The US Army will spend $111 million next year in a new contract with Palantir Technologies, as Peter Thiel’s data analytics company will provide software to connect human resources, supply chains and other Army operations systems into a single dashboard. The new Defense Department deal will represent about 10% of Palantir’s revenue next year, according to people familiar with the company’s finances, Bloomberg reported. The contract has the potential to be renewed for a four-year, $440 million deal with the Army. The deal became another step in the relations between the US government and Palantir, which stepped in to help develop video recognition software as part of the project after Google abandoned a Pentagon effort known as Project Maven.

Controversial Startup Palantir Denies Assisting ICE With Family Separations – Fortune

PALT

Big data analysis and security startup Palantir Technologies has not been working for the part of the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency that has enforced controversial child separations, despite criticism of the company’s work. Instead, Palantir’s contract to provide its cutting-edge information analysis services is with a separate division of ICE called Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, Ryan Beiermeister, lead product manager at Palantir, explained Wednesday at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit in Laguna Niguel, Calif. HSI is a “distinct group” that performs investigations of international criminal activities like drug trafficking and human trafficking, Beiermeister said. The unit has no responsibility for the controversial immigration enforcement actions taken by ICE, such as separating hundreds of migrant children from their parents at the border. Palantir CEO Alex Karp has been outspoken in his belief that Silicon Valley companies should work with the U.S. government at a time when some startups and tech workers have argued that helping the Trump administration carry out some of its policies is immoral.

Palantir is welcome here - The Chronicle

PALT

Last week, the Duke Student Government Senate passed a resolution that urged Duke to terminate its “partnerships” with Palantir Technologies with the immediate aim of stopping the firm’s recruitment efforts on campus. This action by the DSG Senate - while perhaps emotionally satisfying for many of its members - is short-sighted, blatantly partisan in nature, largely uninformed by fact, and unnecessarily paternalistic when it comes to dictating the employment opportunities of Duke students. While I can understand why a subset of students here take issue with Palantir’s specific contracts with ICE, I would encourage them to take a more nuanced approach. We ought to not only roundly applaud Palantir for this work, but we should recognize how and why some of our fellow students may want to work for the firm and support such efforts. In addition, on-campus critics of Palantir seem to be suffering from misplaced priorities and are dishing out criticism in an inconsistent and seemingly hypocritical manner that becomes obvious upon looking at the myriad of other ICE contractors. For instance, a band of activists on this campus, while small in number but disproportionately loud, have made a crusade out of pursuing Palantir but are conveniently silent when it comes to other firms that contract with ICE – several of whom recruit strongly here at Duke.

Palantir took over from Google on Project Maven

PALT GOOGL +1 more PALT GOOGL GOOG

The Grace Hopper Celebration, which is the world's largest conference for women in computing, dropped Palantir as a sponsor in August because it gives "direct technology assistance that enables the human rights abuses of asylum seekers and their children at US southern border detention centers," Robert Read, an executive with the conference's parent company, told Business Insider at the time. Google took the opposite approach and leaned away from controversy, which opened the door for Palantir. Former Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene announced in June 2018 that the company wouldn't renew its contract for Project Maven after thousands of employees signed a petition opposing the work. Palantir cofounder Peter Thiel, Silicon Valley's most prominent supporter of President Donald Trump, criticized Google's decision to drop out of Project Maven in August, calling it "seemingly treasonous" for Google to reject the US military while opening an artificial intelligence lab in China. In March, The Intercept obtained an email from Google executive Kent Walker in which he said that an unnamed technology company was taking over its work on the program and will use "off-the-shelf Google Cloud Platform (basic compute service, rather than Cloud AI or other Cloud Services) to support some workloads."

Ottawa’s AI ethics test didn’t consider Palantir’s controversial work with U.S. law enforcement - The Logic

PALT

The data-mining firm Palantir Technologies has faced criticism from civil rights groups for its work with U.S. immigration authorities and police forces. But officials in Ottawa weren’t able to consider the company’s most controversial work when evaluating whether it should be allowed to bid on some Canadian government artificial intelligence projects, The Logic has learned. Companies wanting to qualify as bidders had to outline their qualifications, provide examples of their past work and show how they “address ethical considerations when delivering AI.” But while Palantir submitted a 52-page response filled with case studies, resumes and business principles, it does not appear to have mentioned its contracts with U.S. law enforcement. In May, Latinx advocacy organization Mijente released documents it said showed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) used Palantir’s software in a 2017 operation that arrested 443 people by targeting relatives of unaccompanied children who crossed into the U.S. via the Mexican border; Palantir has denied its technology is used in this way. He said the government’s criteria are partly to blame, because they focus on the effectiveness of the technology and ways to reduce bias, instead of asking companies to grapple with whether AI should have been used in their projects at all—such as Palantir’s law-enforcement work.
