Graph Technology and Data Science Workshop


Curious as to what graph data science (GDS) is all about? Come get a refresher on graph, graph data science, and how you can get value out of the connections in your data! This workshop will provide you with a crash course in how to leverage graphs by expanding your data science workflows. The hands-on section focuses on providing concrete examples of how to interact with the Neo4j database from a python notebook, create graph-y features, work with graph specific ML algorithms and how to leverage these results. Newbies to graph data science as well as experienced graph practitioners are welcome to join and dive into the GDS (Graph Data Science) Library.

Session Outline:

○ Graph Technology and Graph Data Science
