Getting Started with the Microsoft Concept Graph in Neo4j

What does the study of concepts (or categories, depending on your field of study) tell us about the human mind?

Using this data, the team at Microsoft hopes to build better search engines, spell-checkers, recommendation engine, taxonomies and more.
