NODES: A 24-Hour Virtual Conference for the Global Community

Our free online conference, NODES 2022, is approaching quickly! Don’t miss out on a 24-hour agenda packed with technical sessions on November 16 & 17! You can get a virtual front row seat to all the graph use cases and implementations you desire in the 100+ sessions presented by speakers from around the world.

No matter if you are a beginner, an expert, or somewhere in-between, there will be session tracks relevant to you throughout the conference. All of the talks are brimming with fresh insights, presented by experienced practitioners who can’t wait to share their knowledge with you. The speakers will cover a wide array of subjects from knowledge graphs and graph visualization to graph data science, and beyond.

Kicking us off is keynote speaker Nicholas Christakis, the renowned social scientist, who will discuss the effects of social networks and how they can be used to change population behavior. His talk is inspired by his research and book, “Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives.”

Agenda for the Americas

All of the sessions are live and unique throughout the conference – there will not be pre-recorded replays during the event. If you are in the Americas’ time zones, here are some key speakers with their session information:

    • Kateryna Nesvit, Discover Invisible Patterns in Your Data: Connect Google Sheets Tables and Neo4j

      In her session, Kateryna Nesvit will provide guidance and code for connecting a Google Sheets spreadsheet to a graph in Neo4j. She will cover the fundamental transformation from table data to a graph data model. You will also learn Cypher queries and take the first steps in using data to empower your decisions and make your projects and businesses successful.

    • Ward Cunningham: Hypertext Super Collaborator
      Systems thinking inspires us to write, share, and aggregate small graphs in order to discover larger ones. We compose these products of our imagination as graph shaped “poems” in the style of Haiku. Wiki’s property graph representation joins tables and trees in the space right behind the glass and travels freely within our federation.
    • Mark Heckler: Let’s Get Functional! Pull Off a Trifecta With Spring Cloud Function, Azure Functions, and Neo4j
      His session examines what makes a capability an ideal candidate for development and deployment as a function. The presenter will lead attendees in a Live Coding Adventure(TM) to demonstrate how to create candidate functions using the power of Spring Boot and Spring Cloud Function.

These are just three of 100+ speakers to be found during the event. You will also learn from other well-known speakers such as Jennifer Reif, Mark Needham, Ashleigh Faith, Michal Štefaňák, Will Lyon, and many more.

All of this goodness is free! Don’t even think twice, just register now!

Agenda for Asia Pacific

NODES 2022 is also a live online event for anyone in Asia Pacific to attend on November 17! We’ll start with Nicholas Christakis, our keynote speaker who will discuss the impact of social networks on population behavior.

You will get the chance to see experts bringing you unique perspectives about everything graph. Among the speakers, you’ll find:

    • Chaitra Ravada and Joinal Ahmed: Take Data to the Next Level With Graph Machine Learning

      They will discuss why graph machine learning makes more sense than the traditional ML approach and show you how graph ML powers use cases like recommendation systems, fraud detection, and more. They will also teach you how to build a fraud detection solution powered by Neo4j, as well as how to deploy graph-based machine learning models on the cloud.

    • Sixing Huang:, A Graph-Based Medical Chatbot
      Knowledge graphs are prevalent, especially in medicine and healthcare – but, so far, only experts can operate them. A natural language chatbot can change that. We have developed a cloud-native medical chatbot called, backed by a Neo4j graph. We can employ either AWS Lex, GPT-3, or Alan AI as the natural language understanding engine.
    • Dekel Paz: BlueHound: Community-Driven Security Based on Neo4j and NeoDash
      BlueHound is a new open-source cybersecurity tool originally inspired by and forked from NeoDash, Neo4j’s dashboard builder, which helps create visualizations for graph data. BlueHound helps defensive teams pinpoint security issues by adding data collection capabilities, query execution and caching, results export, and many new charts and features.

Among the three conference tracks, you will also get the opportunity to listen to additional well-known speakers, such as Nur Aini Rakhmawat, Sixing Huang, Koji Annoura, Joinal Ahmed, Zihao Zhang, and Jan Zak.

Agenda for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa

Last, but not least, NODES will end with a packed schedule on November 17 for the EMEA timezone. Starting the day is keynote speaker, Nicholas Christakis, who will discuss the societal implications of social networks.

All the sessions are delivered by long-time practitioners in graph technologies. Some of the key speakers you will find are:

    • Dagmar Waltemath: The HealthECCO Knowledge Graph – Applying Neo4j Technologies in Health Data Research

      The focus of her talk will be on introducing the main code repositories included in the HealthECCO graph, explaining the workflow behind the data loading pipeline, and showcasing the use of Neo4j for health data exploration. Whenever a new data source should be added, the pipeline can be modified to integrate the (fully annotated) dataset.

    • Sebastian Daschner: Building Java Applications With Quarkus and Neo4j
      In his live-coding session, you will learn how to build modern Java applications powered by Quarkus that use Neo4j as a graph database to persist domain entities.We will show you how to integrate Neo4j into the Java and Quarkus world using OGM, map the graph domain model in our code, and build user recommendations.
    • Rhys Evans: Hidden in the Clouds: Using Graph Technology to Understand Your Cloud Estate
      “The Financial Times” turned to graph technologies – Neo4j and GraphQL – to build a user-friendly picture of multiple AWS accounts. This helps keep their data more secure, saves them money, improves engineering efficiency, and provides instant insights that would previously have taken hours or days of research.

And there are additional well-known speakers like Chris Engelbert, Estelle Scifo, Michael Simmons, and Tomaz Bratanic.
