Intelligence and law enforcement agents often use Palantir Government, a software program that helps them to monitor the activities of suspected terrorist groups and to fight cyberterrorism. Pitt students will soon be using the software, too. This year, the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs implemented the technology to train students enrolled in the school’s security and intelligence studies program. Pitt is the first U.S. university to incorporate the software into its curriculum.
