Neo4j is a native graph database, which means all of the code – from the web browser to the drivers, Bolt protocol, page cache, cluster protocols, disk storage format — is optimized for graph workloads. As hardware advances come along,… Read more →

What does the study of concepts (or categories, depending on your field of study) tell us about the human mind? A result of the Probase research project, the Microsoft Concept Graph harnesses billions of web pages and search logs to build a huge graph of relations between words (like “apple”) and their concepts (like “fruit” or “hardware company”). Using this data, the team at Microsoft hopes to build better search engines, spell-checkers, recommendation engine, taxonomies and more.

“The great thing about Cypher and Neo4j is that you can start working with them easily, even without knowing everything about them,” said Duncan Grant, EMEA Sales Engineer at Cambridge Intelligence. Grant first became familiar with Neo4j when he started… Read more →
