Last week, our Managing Editor, Jocelyn Hoppa, highlighted a two-part series of how Neo4j and machine learning help human fact-checkers detect fake news. It’s a great series and really uncovers how difficult it can be for humans alone to detect fake news and stop it in its tracks.
This week, I’ve picked the Neo4j Online Meetup – which is also somehow only the third-largest Neo4j meetup(?). The Neo4j Online Meetup is coordinated by the intrepid Mark Needham with the help of Karin Wolok, and it’s for everyone across the globe, so even if you don’t have a local gathering of graphistas (or even if you do), you can always find a home in the global graph.
Below, I’ve highlighted a recent – and one of the most interesting – online meetups we’ve hosted: a presentation by the International Salmon Data Laboratory (ISDL), who are using Neo4j to track “the canary in the coal mine” of climate change resilience. It’s pretty sciency stuff – and essential to know.
The International Year of the Salmon (IYS) involves a dozen countries with one overarching goal: salmon are resilient to climate change. IYS is launching the International Salmon Data Laboratory (ISDL) so that you can help us leverage the power of Neo4j. The tools you are developing can have impacts throughout the environmental sciences.
(The ISDL is also a part of the Graphs4Good program at Neo4j.)
