Abstract: You’ve probably heard that graphs are a major trend in data science and analytics, and you may have wondered how to translate the buzz into business value. We’ll cover the fundamentals of graph data science: what graphs are, how they can be incorporated into your analytics practice, and how Neo4j’s connected data platform can help you move from proof of concept to production. Learn about world use cases including fraud, recommendations, and supply chain optimization to show how it’s possible to translate state of the science techniques into practical business value across multiple industries and use cases.
