CIA invests in Apache Spark
Databricks, the company behind Apache Spark, has announced that it has made a strategic partnership agreement with the CIA's investment arm, In-Q-Tel.
While In-Q-Tel is legally independent of the CIA, conspiracy theories still attend its investments, which seemingly include almost everybody offering some sort of service in data analytics.
“A partnership with Databricks continues IQT's tradition of working with world-class analytics companies,” said Dan Gwak, Partner, IQT Investments. “We are proud to partner with Databricks to advance the intelligence mission.” ®
