Built by the engineers behind Netezza and the technology behind Amazon Redshift, AnzoGraph is a native, Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) distributed Graph OLAP (GOLAP) database that executes queries more than 100x faster than other vendors.  

Welcome to this week in Neo4j, where we round up what’s been happening in the world of graph databases in the last seven days.

Featured Community Member: Alessandro Negro

This week’s featured community member is Alessandro Negro, Chief Scientist at Neo4j Solutions Partner GraphAware.

Alessandro Negro - This Week's Featured Community Member

I first came across Alessandro when he presented a talk on Reco4j, a recommendation framework that combined Neo4j and Hadoop, in June 2013.

He went on to create Reco4 before joining GraphAware.

Alessandro is currently leading the charge on machine learning/graphs and presented Mining and Searching Text With Graph Databases at our most popular London meetup event to date. In the talk, he showed how Neo4j and NLP can be combined to create advanced services on top of text analysis: recommendations, trend discovery, and finding influencers.

Alessandro will present Powering Relevant Search With Neo4j and Elastic Search at GraphConnect New York on October 24, 2017.

On behalf of the Neo4j community, thanks for all your work, Alessandro!

From GraphConnect: RDF vs. Property Graph Alternative Facts

We didn’t have an online meetup this week, so we’ll recap one of my favorite talks from GraphConnect Europe 2017 (Debunking Some RDF vs. Property Graph Alternative Facts) presented by my colleague Dr. Jesús Barrasa.

Jesus compares and contrasts the Labelled Property Graph (LPG) and RDF approaches to modelling graphs, the SPARQL and Cypher query languages, and addresses some common confusions when analysing these technologies.

You can also see the online meetup Graph Databases, RDF, and Linked Data, which covers similar ground.

On the Podcast: Chuck Calio

This week on the Graphistania podcast, Rik interviews IBM’s Chuck Calio.

Chuck and Rik discuss running Neo4j on IBM Power8 and the benefits you get from running large graphs on that type of hardware.

Chuck also shares his vision for where he thinks graphs will play a role in the future of technology.

Chuck will be speaking at the GraphConnect New York conference on October 24, 2017.
