Palantirí are the magical stones in Lord of the Rings that can communicate with each other and transmit messages over long distances. They are instruments of power in Tolkien's Middle Earth universe. The Palantir software from the US company Palantir Technologies is one of the most powerful and controversial data analysis tools in the world and is used by secret services and police authorities, the US military, banks, hedge funds and some large companies. The company's specialty is to standardize and combine information from gigantic data collections and to find relevant links in order to then create perpetrator profiles for combating terrorism or to determine targets in the Ukraine war. "We kill people based on the data," says CEO Alex Karp candidly in one of his rare interviews. WATCHING YOU orbits around the Palantir complex rather than dissecting it, which is also due to the fact that Palantir's areas of operation are top secret and the clients are tight-lipped, not even stock market journalists know how the company finances itself, and company employees have to sign NDAs "until the end of time.“ 90 minutes are not nearly enough to explain the software or unravel the company's history and so we are left with interesting pieces of the puzzle: one of them being the "hessendata" program of the Hessian police and the constitutional complaint against its use due to data protection concerns. Another is the attempt to paint a portrait of Alex Karp. Karp, who studied in Germany, exudes a hippie charm and, when asked about the secret of his success, sometimes answers with Hegel. Analysts see him as both the greatest asset and a risk factor.
