This Week in Neo4j: GraphAcademy, Algorithms, GenAI, Knowledge Graphs and more

Welcome to This Week in Neo4j, your weekly fix for news from the world of graph databases!
There is a lot of content available for learners in this edition. Besides the updates to GraphAcademy and our Workshops in March, O’Reilly is conducting a Knowledge Graph Course. As readers of our newsletter, you get a free 30-day trial.

In other news, we have a cool way of looking at Graph Algorithms, learn how to find songs from lyrics and a witty keynote on AI.

I hope you enjoy this issue,

GRAPHACADEMY: New Courses Available

Our team have released new courses on our Free Online Learning Platform. The latest addition is “Build a Neo4j-backed Chatbot with TypeScript”. We also invite you to our upcoming Training Series in March with various topics from Introduction to Neo4j to RAG App Deployment.
GRAPH ALGORITHMS: Neo4j Graph Algorithms Table of Elements
Hari Gurumoorthi is an Advanced Data Analytics Specialist at BT Group and published his take on the Neo4j Graph Algorithms visualised as Table of Elements. It is a great overview of the different types of algorithms and looks extremely cool!    

GENAI: A Gen AI-Powered Song Finder in Four Lines of Code
Have you ever wanted to find a song, but you don’t remember what it was called, nor who wrote it? Christoffer Bergman shows us how to build a tool that helps us with that and goes beyond ChatGPT by integrating with Neo4j.

GenerativeAI has taken the world by storm, but it’s not always a reliable helper. It makes up alternative facts, has difficulty with number and logical reasoning, all while exuding the confidence of a dodgy politician! Watch Jim Webber’s closing keynote from JFokus in Stockholm now.
