GraphConnect is right around the corner! We are so excited to get together with the community for this long-awaited onsite event in Austin, Texas, from June 6 – 8, 2022. You can learn all about it – speakers, content, and social events – online. There’s still time for you join the festivities!
All of us are interested in the insights graph technology extracts from complex datasets to solve some of society’s most pressing problems. For that, Neo4j created Graphs4Good to showcase the graphistas around the global who are using graph technology to build a better world. In this edition, Jennifer Reif takes a look at the technical setup of three of those projects in cancer research, food supply, and safe space travel.

EXTRACT KNOWLEDGE FROM TEXT: Extraction Pipeline With spaCy and Neo4jThe development of powerful IE pipelines gives mortals a chance to comprehend the increasing flood of information available online. Tomaz demonstrates a couple of spaCy IE pipelines that process Wikipedia articles for coreference resolution and relation extraction and entity linking. He uses a graph database to store the results and the WikiData API to enrich the graph.
GRAPHS4GOOD: Graph Technology is Tackling Complex, Real-World ProblemsBy allowing us to see underlying context and relationships that get missed in other data formats, graph technology is improving life for all of us. Jennifer looks at three project areas from the Graphs4Good department, where graphs help solve the complex technical challenges involved in the fields of cancer research, feeding the world, and cleaning up space garbage.
