Palmer Luckey (previously) the alt-right financier who was made a billionaire by Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to acquire his VR startup Oculus, is now running a Peter-Thiel-backed surveillance startup called Anduril Industries, which has won a contract to contribute to Project Maven, the Pentagon’s controversial AI-for-drones system (Google’s involvement in Project Maven sparked an employee uprising that ended with the relevant executives leaving the company and the contract being allowed to lapse).
