A powerful Silicon Valley startup has been working with the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) to test a controversial system that can predict where crimes are most likely to occur and which people are most likely to commit them.

That's according to a recent investigation by the Verge which uncovered that Palantir Technologies, a big data analytics firm that's backed by the CIA's venture capital arm, formed a partnership with the NOPD in 2012.

Palantir's predictive policing tool was being tested without the knowledge of many local government officials or even the residents of New Orleans.
