Video Demonstration - Kamikaze Analysis
This video is a demonstration of one of the building blocks
of our educational platform showing a few of the data analysis capabilities. We use the Palantir platform’s analysis capabilities to look
at a number of aspects of Japan’s “Special Attack”, or Kamikaze campaign in the
last months of the War. This presentation
is not a scholarly analysis, but rather a demonstration of tools available to
students and scholars for performing their own case study analysis.
The genesis of this analysis was a visit to Palantir’s Palo Alto headquarters by former Secretary of Defense William Perry of the Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Secretary Perry served in the U.S. Army in Japan shortly after World War II and was personally knowledgeable of many of details; his curiosity led to this demonstration.
