Hyundai Heavy to adopt Palantir's big data platform
South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Group said on Wednesday that it has signed a contract with Palantir Technologies Inc., a US data analytics company, to introduce the latter’s data-driven operating system Foundry across its shipyards. The big data platform is expected to accelerate the shipbuilder’s digital transformation it has been pushing for under a so-called Future of Shipyard vision. In January and May of this year, Hyundai Samho and Hyundai Heavy conducted pilot projects to apply the Foundry platform to their ship design and manufacturing processes. Going forward, the group will apply the Foundry system to other units such as Hyundai Construction Equipment Co. and Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems Co.
