From GraphConnect: Knowledge Graph Search with Elasticsearch

At GraphConnect NYC 2017 Luanne Misquitta and Alessandro Negro explained how to do graph search with Neo4j and Elasticsearch.

They talk about the rise of Knowledge Graphs in the last few years and how we can use them in our applications to serve better search results to users.
