In April 2014, I gave a presentation at my Alma Mater, the University of Winnipeg: Graph Databases – Overview and Applications
It was presented to the faculty and students of the Applied Computer Science Master’s program.
Most had not seen graph databases before. However, I expect that some of them will be using graphs in the near future. 🙂
A PDF of the presentation can be found here:
Some of the topics of the presentation were:
Four types of Big Data database: Key Value, Column, Document, Graph
Comparisons between graph and relational databases.
Situations where graph databases are superior to RDBMS.
Data models: RDBMS vs Graph
Organizations using graphs: Google, Linked IN, Facebook, Cisco, T-Mobile, NSA
Applications for graphs
Social network analysis
History and influence of Philosophers, Writers
Social Network of Homer, Alexander the Great
Market Intelligence: which executives own which companies?
How Google Uses Graphs
Overview of NSA’s graph database
Fraud – Check kiting schemes
Social Network Prediction Engine
Graph Databases on the market
Universities offering degrees in Data Science
I hope it’s useful. Enjoy!
