Description

This introductory session discusses the power of open source and graphs for making the most of your big data challenges. While on one hand open source enables room for customizability and creativity, on the other hand graph databases are the ideal model for storing and leveraging connected data.

The result is a powerful combination – as demonstrated by several use cases that will be covered in this talk. Join Kenny Bastani of Neo Technology as he provides a whirl-wind tour of open source graph database real-world use cases in a variety of areas: social, art and film, and bioinformatics research, to name a few.
